Campus Budget Update

The UW-Green Bay Office of the Chancellor emailed the following from Chancellor Michael Alexander to the UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff on Thursday, June 25, 2020.

Dear UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff,

I hope you are all doing well.  Prior to our Coffee Break on Monday morning at 8:30 a.m., I wanted to update you on three items regarding our budget.

  1. We were informed by System that the Pay Plan increase from this year will no longer be funded.  In order to sustain the 2% pay increase, we must pay for this from existing funds.  The result amounts to a permanent base budget cut to the university of $218,000 so that we can fund the pay increases this year and moving forward.
  2. We received an additional $709,000 in one-time money from the Governor’s Office to help assist with COVID-related expenses. We are still waiting on final details for how that money can be used.
  3. I want to thank everyone working at the Manitowoc, Marinette, and Sheboygan campuses.  Because of your hard work, we are making enormous strides towards putting each of those locations in a positive enrollment and financial position moving forward.  This is an amazing accomplishment and one that we should all celebrate as one university with four locations all moving forward together.

Kate, Sheryl, and I look forward to talking with you all on Monday morning.


Michael Alexander
