Writing on the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education’s blog, Noel Radomski explains that state agencies have until the fall to submit their biennial budget requests to the Department of Administration.

UW-Madison’s Nicholas Hillman co-authored a recent blog post headlined, “The Accountability Movement, College Choice and the Importance of Place.” In it, Hillman and co-author Jonathan Turk write that "efforts to provide students and families with new and meaningful data to inform college choice are admirable. However, if policymakers want to improve postsecondary attainment levels and strengthen institutions, simply trying to nudge students to make ‘better choices’ about where to attend is not sufficient." Hillman is an associate professor with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis.

A new article by UW-Madison’s Nicholas Hillman is critical of policies that link state funding of public higher education to certain performance measures. The report, released by The Century Foundation earlier this week, is titled “Why Performance-Based College Funding Doesn’t Work.” More than two-thirds of states are either developing or using some sort of performance-based funding for public colleges and universities, with performance being tracked in areas such as graduation rates and degree production numbers. But Hillman argues this way of distributing funding is rarely effective.
