$7 million more in cuts for UW system

The Joint Finance Committee decided today to take $7 million more back from UW auxiliary funds.  They already had taken $16 million, so the new total is $23 million.

Unfortunately, I don't have the budget figures that were circulated last month in front of me, but this will surely mean another significant cut here on campus.   Our share of the $7 million will go up because UW-Lacrosse's share was reduced.

It is a nice way to start our summer, knowing that the state is stripping even more from higher education here.   What more will we lose before the semester starts again in the fall?
