Heated Debate Blames Tuition Freeze

Heated Debate Blames Tuition Freeze

A new report blames Wisconsin’s tuition freeze for all manners of financial challenges at the University of Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Policy Forum says the state’s seven-year-old tuition freeze is good for students, but hurts the university by choking-off a stream of new dollars. The Policy Forum also says UW Madison is slipping as a research institution, and that campus buildings have fallen behind.

The group Badgers United is using the report to suggest a tuition increase, more money for the university from the state budget, and a billion-dollar line of credit for the main campus in Madison.
