The University of Wisconsin’s Board of Regents voted unanimously on Friday
to add tenure protections to system policy as the state’s Republican-led
government appeared ready to remove them from state law, the Milwaukee
Journal Sentinel reports.
Proposed legislation, crafted
by the Wisconsin Legislature’s Joint Committee on Finance as part of the state
budget, would strip shared-governance guarantees and tenure protections from
state law. It is expected to pass and be signed into law by Gov. Scott Walker.
