Deal or No Deal?

Deal or No Deal?

UW regents may have changed their minds about swapping a few dozen diversity, equity, and inclusion jobs for nearly a billion-dollars from the state legislature.

Regents will vote again today on the DEI deal with Republican lawmakers. That deal would have the university repurpose just over 40 diversity administrators in exchange for pay raises for 35 thousand UW workers, a new engineering building on the Madison campus, and millions more in other university needs. Regents narrowly rejected the same deal on Saturday. They said it ‘sold out’ minority students. Republicans made it clear after that vote that the deal was a take-it or leave-it offer.
