A Badger Herald article
took a look at what UW students can expect from Wisconsin's gubernatorial and Senate candidates if they win the election this November, and Noel Radomski, managing director of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education
(WISCAPE), was among the experts offering their perspective on the candidates' positions.
Regarding UW funding, Radomski expressed concern that both Tony Evers and Scott Walker, who are facing off in the race for governor, have pledge to continue the existing tuition freeze. He said that without sufficient funding, the UW system may be harmed.
“If the governor and the legislature continue to say, ‘we need to have a tuition freeze,’ it’s the UW-La Crosses and Steven’s Points and Whitewaters that are saying now, ‘we can’t continue this, we need revenue,’ because now their quality is being affected,” Radomski said.
Radomski also commented on the candidates positions and past records regarding research funding, tenure protections, performance-based funding, and more.
