MADISON — New documents show the University of Wisconsin-Madison will take a nearly $59 million hit this budget year under a total $250 million cut to the UW System in the state budget.

System officials released their 2015-16 budget Monday, July 6th.

The plan also shows UW-Milwaukee taking an $18 million cut.

The other 11 four-year campuses will see cuts ranging from $851,000 to $7.7 million.

The budget materials did not include details on how the campuses will deal with the cuts. The state budget prohibits the schools from raising resident tuition for the next two years. The Board of Regents in April approved tuition increases for out-of-state students by a least several hundred dollars.

The Board of Regents is expected to approve the annual system budget Thursday.

The Associated Press has issued this statement in conjunction with this story: “This story has been corrected to show that UW-Madison is hardest-hit in terms of raw dollars and corrects the amount of cuts to all the schools.”
