Proposed federal budget includes student aid, research cuts

President Donald Trump’s first budget request to Congress has understandably caused some concern on our campus and across the higher education landscape, Chancellor Rebecca Blank says in a blog post.  The cuts are broad and deep, but a significant chunk of the savings proposed would come out of student aid and research spending. Our federal relations staff has been working to ensure that the importance of these funds to our institution, and to the greater state and national economy, is fully apparent to our congressional delegation. An excellent summary of the complete budget proposal and its potential impact on campus can be found here. You can also receive periodic updates by clicking on the subscribe tab at the bottom of the Federal Relations home page.

Quality improvement, administrative process units to merge

The Office of Quality Improvement (OQI) and Administrative Process Redesign (APR) will formally merge in the coming months, joining to provide the UW–Madison campus with a comprehensive suite of organizational development and improvement services for both academic and administrative units. The impending merger follows the announcement that APR director Alice Gustafson will retire later this summer and as the search for a new director of OQI nears conclusion. Longtime OQI director Maury Cotter retired earlier this year. Darin Harris is currently serving as interim director.
