AAUP Assails Wisconsin Governor’s Autonomy Plan

The Chronicle of Higher Education
March 12th, 2015

The American Association of University Professors has come out against Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to cut ties between the State of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin system.
The proposal “could profoundly undermine tenure, due process, and shared governance in the university system, principles that AAUP has long seen as essential to ensuring higher education’s contribution to the common good,” the association said in a statement.
Raymond W. Cross, the system’s president, has supported the proposal, saying the enhanced autonomy would justify the $300-million budget cut over two years that would accompany it.
