University Relations provides online toolkit for the state budget process

The Office of University Relations created an online toolkit to help faculty, staff, students and stakeholders understand the state budget process and how to support the request. The process – which began with the UW System Board of Regent approval of the UW 2019-21 state budget request, continues with the introduction of a budget by the governor, followed by legislative consideration – could last until June of 2019.

The toolkit, available at, provides a summary of the budget request, timely updates as the process moves forward, and other resources that can be used to answer questions. The site also includes a State Budget Advocacy Checklist to share with stakeholders who would like to advocate on behalf of UW-Madison.

For UW-Madison employees, a guidance document on advocacy and outreach can be found here.
