MADISON — Faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have overwhelmingly supported a no-confidence vote in UW System President Ray Cross and the UW Board of Regents.

Monday’s voice vote came in the university’s Faculty Senate, which has 220 senators representing more than 2,200 staff members. Supporters of the measure say System leaders should have fought harder against $250 million in GOP-led funding cuts over two years.

They were also angered by a budget provision that weakened job protections.

Cross said in a statement that he disagreed with the resolution and would continue to fight for the UW System.

Regents President Regina Miller said the board has “total confidence” in Cross. She said changes in tenure and layoff policies were “very reasonable and fair” and comparable to other schools.
