UW–Madison’s budget, illustrated

I know we are all very busy as the semester draws to a close, but I wanted to put a quick note here to announce the release of the 2015-16 University of Wisconsin–Madison Budget in Brief.

This is the second year that the Office of University Relations, working with our vice chancellor for finance and administration, has assembled this document. Because our budget is so complex, I asked them to put the essential information in a clear, easy-to-navigate document.

To tell the story, the Budget in Brief uses words, graphics and charts to illustrate the university’s revenue sources and how they are distributed, and provide information about funding sources, expenditures, student financial aid, fund balances and the university’s economic impact.

An online version of the Budget in Brief is available. In the coming days, print copies are being distributed to state and local government officials, legislators, deans and unit directors, and alumni. If you don’t receive a copy and would like one, email Greg Bump.
