In exchange for severe budget cuts the UW gets autonomy. Or actually nothing. Good luck UW Madison.

    UW gets half a loaf plus $31 Million. State will ease up on many budgeting and purchasing rules for all UW schools. Madison gets back the $31 Million from cuts it gave up for full freedom. Now two year cut is $94 Million for Madison or about 10%. Not good not terrible. Not the worst deal overall considering. Plus state will look at more freedoms after the budget is done.

    Details here. Good news is many new grants of authority to UW with many separate grants to UW Madison for faculty salaries and budget control. Bad news is 5.5% annual limit on instate tuition increases for next 2 years. Makes it hard to balance off state funding cuts. Many schools with 10% cuts are going for 10%+ tuition bumps to offset some of the cuts.

    OK, Barrons, where do you think the cuts that WILL have to be made will show up? I'm a little concerned for the tuition increases for D2, a rising junior, but more concerned with the graduate school landscape, 'cause I think that's where she's headed in a couple years. Could it affect TA stipends, internships, fellowships, etc.?

    Instate will go up 5.5% per year plus whatever was in the Madison Initiative already. OOS will probably be similar at 5.5%. I see them NOT cutting grad student funding as this is a key priority area. They may take fewer as demand for PhDs continues to fall and why produce even more.
