Radomski talks about finding that Wisconsin had 4th biggest drop in funding for higher education

April 26, 2019
Even as other states were recovering from the Great Recession, Wisconsin had one of the largest per-student declines in funding for higher education between 2013 and 2018, ​​​reports a recent Wisconsin State Journal article​.

Noel Radomski​This was ​according to a State Higher Education Executive Officers Association report that was released earlier this month. That report found that just three states — Oklahoma, West Virginia and Mississippi — saw a larger drop ​in funding over the five years.

The article ​included the expertise of the UW–Madison's Noel Radomski, managing director of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE), to ​put the findings in context.

“The bottom line is we have not recovered yet​, which goes to what we felt intuitively, especially with the tuition freeze and the cuts," said Radomski in the article. “It becomes a question of does the state want to return funding to where we were prior to the recession?”

Radomski also spoke about the report's findings in an article in the Badger Herald.
