UW budget proposal announced

Gov. Scott Walker shakes hands with UWL Chancellor Joe Gow during a budget announcement at UWL on February 7, 2017.

One day before Governor Scott Walker’s state budget address, the governor announced his proposal to freeze, then decrease tuition at all UW System schools. The proposal also calls for the state to provide $35 million to cover the decreased tuition, along with an additional $100 million, with the largest portion of that to be tied to performance funding.

Gov. Walker laid out his proposal to a crowd of students, faculty and staff in UWL’s new Student Union on Tuesday.
