Chancellor Mark Mone said that due to Governor Walker’s proposed budget cuts, UW-Milwaukee will hold spending in three areas.
According to a campus-wide email cost containment has gone into effect in the following measures:
1. A hold on the hiring of all non-essential positions, except those extramurally funded through grants or contracts.
2. A hold on non-essential, out-of-state travel except out-of state travel funded by gift or grant funds and not including out-of state travel directly related to research or academic activities
3. A hold on non-essential and discretionary salary adjustments
The chancellor said that these measures will be in place until July 1 at the latest. See what else Mone had to say in his campus budget meeting this morning.
