“We appreciate the funding the Governor provided in his budget which will allow us to make general repairs across the UW System, as well as update the technology our students are using in the classroom.

“We carefully developed a reasonable capital budget plan to perform a limited amount of work each year at a steady pace.  The longer we delay these critical repairs, the more it ultimately costs students and taxpayers in the end.

“We hope to work with the Governor and legislature in the months ahead to help ensure we have adequate and refurbished teaching and living space for our students.”
