UW System statement on Gov. Walker’s Budget
Gov. Scott Walker Wednesday released his proposed 2013-15 biennial state budget, which calls for more than $181 million in new taxpayer investments in the University of Wisconsin System.
"Governor Walker recognizes and appreciates the role that UW institutions play in boosting our state's economy. Job creation and workforce development are top priorities for everyone, including the UW System. We look forward to working with all legislators from both parties to advance this budget," said UW System President Kevin P. Reilly.
"This support from the state will help UW strengthen the workforce, by preparing students for careers in business, healthcare, science, and engineering. Funding for the UW Flexible Option will help working adults complete their college degrees in a more convenient, affordable manner," said Michael Falbo, Vice President of the UW System Board of Regents.The entire statement is available online.
