Chancellor notifies students of furlough fallout
UW-Green Bay Chancellor Thomas K. Harden sent an e-mail to students Tuesday (Sept. 15) describing how state budget reductions will affect their University this academic year. Focusing on furloughs, Harden said, “After years of lean budgets and belt tightening at UW-Green Bay, there’s no longer a question as to whether we can somehow negate the impact of budget cuts and fully maintain services. We can’t…” He informed students of the four common furlough days, previously identified, that will close campus on Nov. 27, Dec. 28, Jan. 15 and May 28. He also advised patience and flexibility when scheduling appointments and office visits as faculty and staff schedules are affected by additional unpaid leave. “…We look forward to restoring these lost hours when the economy rebounds. In the meantime, we’ll continue to work tirelessly to offer a first-rate education for our students,” the Chancellor said. See the full message.
