As you have heard, the Governor has announced an additional $1.6 billion budget shortfall. Governor Doyle plans to meet with UW System chancellors on Friday, May 15 to discuss the current budget situation and its potential impact. We do not yet have any specific information at this time as to how this shortfall will affect CALS. We will post additional information and answers to frequently asked questions as soon as they become available on the CALS budget web page http://www.cals.wisc.edu/budget/. We recognize this situation creates significant anxiety and confusion. We join our university leadership in our commitment to address your concerns and questions as quickly as possible.
