UW-Milwaukee is facing a great challenge and you can help. The State budget that has been proposed by Governor Scott Walker would result in a $300 million reduction in State aid to the University of Wisconsin System. For UWM the proposed budget would mean a $40 million reduction in state funding over the next 2 years. This is the biggest cut in our history and a cut of this magnitude would present unprecedented challenges to UWM. Panther Advocates are encouraged to contact the Governor, their Legislators and members of the Joint Finance Committee to show support for UWM. See below to find your legislator, pointers for communicating your UWM story and additional information to augment your UWM story.
