Chancellor Blank response to State of the State

University of Wisconsin-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank has issued the following comment on Governor Scott Walker’s proposal to lower state resident undergraduate tuition throughout the UW System:

“Like Governor Walker, our goal is to make UW-Madison affordable and accessible to all Wisconsin students. It is our hope that the governor and legislature will not only fully fund the proposed tuition reduction but also provide additional investment in the UW System in line with the modest request made by the Board of Regents, which is critical if we are to continue providing an outstanding educational experience to our students.”
