Event Details

For several decades the UW System has been confronted by a wide range of external forces, which have fueled serious and fundamental questions about its affordability, access, quality, and purpose.

With Governor Scott Walker’s release of the 2015-17 state budget, the legislature will soon debate proposals to reduce state revenue to the UW System by more than $300 million and convert it a public authority. Significant concerns have been raised, both within and outside of the University, on the ability of the UW System to continue delivery of its mission in light of these proposals.

We invite you to join civic and business leaders, Wisconsin legislators and staff, members of the UW System Board of Regents, WTCS leaders, UW staff, and campus shared governance leaders for a public discussion on April 16 to address the UW System budget issues and the significant challenges ahead.


The schedule for the event is as follows:

8:30-9 am Registration and continental breakfast
9 am-12 pm Group discussion

Please RSVP by Thursday, April 9!

Live streaming will be available through UW-Fox Valley.


State partners for this program include the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin; Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters (WASAL); the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE); and the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS).

Local partners include the Appleton-Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Appleton League of Women Voters, and the Appleton Post-Crescent.
