UW-Madison's Nicholas Hillman is quoted in an article from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about how Gov. Scott Walker's performance-based funding plan will affect different campuses across the UW System. In the budget plan from Walker, state funding for the UW System would be divided among the campuses by ranking the different schools against each other and considering performance factors such as average time to degree and overall graduation rates. Under this proposal from the governor, a report from Hillman finds that UW-Madison would be a winner, while UW-Milwaukee and UW-Parkside would lose out.
