FY2016 Budget information

This memo and backup materials were sent by President Gamble in response to Governor Walker’s call for state agencies and the University to submit budget adjustments reflecting 5% and 8% reduction scenarios. It provides context on what we have done and will continue to do to manage budget challenges and provides a sample of some of our recent achievements. At the same time, it acknowledges the critical work ahead to ensure we maintain a strong university by preserving our core.
