Gov. Evers Seeks More UW Funding

Wisconsin’s governor wants even more money for the University of Wisconsin.

Governor Evers on Friday said he’s going to ask the legislature for the largest investment in the UW in over 20 years, though he didn’t have a specific price tag. The governor’s declaration comes after the university last week released financial updates for the campuses in Green Bay, Oshkosh, Parkside, Platteville, River Falls, Superior, and Whitewater. Those reports show stagnant or falling enrollment, rising expenses, and deficits on each campus. The governor says the problem is underfunding, but the UW is not alone in its financial struggles. Many colleges and universities across the country are seeing fewer students.
