The UC met with Provost Britz who spoke of the need to be more aggressive about stating our case in Madison. We discussed the idea of increasing the lobbying effort for UWM and revisited the issue of the “carry-forward surpluses” that were egregious at Madison and virtually non-existent at UWM. We later talked about the guerrilla war between institutional happy talk and the ongoing grimness of enrollment and revenue numbers. Madison’s current freshman class is at an overall high, acknowledged as too big, which gouges the rest of the system. There seems to be no centralized planning for the System.
