The legislature’s Joint Finance Committee advanced its version of the state’s 2021-23 capital budget Tuesday, including funding for a new academic facility for the College of Letters & Science at UW–Madison.
"These critical investments in our campus will help make sure we can continue to provide a world-class education for our students," Blank says.
"Fully funding the tuition freeze and the investment in our faculty ensures we can increase access for our students in high-demand programs, helping build the talent pipeline while driving economic growth for Wisconsin," Blank says.
