Budget Forums
As you are likely well aware, Governor Walker's proposed budget calls for a $300 million cut to the UW System over the next two years. It is estimated that UW-Stevens Point's portion of that budget cut would be around $6.4 million, in addition to 12 additional positions funded through other state agencies. We encourage our students to learn more about the Governor's proposed budget and the impact it would have to UWSP. Students can stay up-to-date online with the UW-Stevens Point Budget Information page. Student forums are scheduled for the following times and dates:
  • ​6 p.m. on Monday, February 23 in the DUC Theater.
The voices of our students matter. Become informed and engage yourself in this discussion. 
Have a great week!
