Wisconsin Idea Partnership

Support

The UW-Green Bay Faculty Senate unanimously passed the following resolution at its meeting April 13, 2011:

Wisconsin Idea Partnership Resolution

Whereas the University of Wisconsin System has admirably served Wisconsin’s citizens for the past forty years, and

Whereas the UW-System’s share of the state budget has been consistently declining for the past twenty-five years, culminating in a proposed $250 million cut for 2011-13, and

Whereas financial decisions at each institution are optimally made at a local level by those most familiar with the institution,

Therefore be it resolved that the Faculty Senate of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay endorses the Wisconsin Idea Partnership, a plan which would extend to all UW-System institutions the financial and administrative flexibilities Governor Walker has advocated providing for UW-Madison, while keeping all current UW-System schools within the System.
