A cost-saving measure for UW System

With the departure of Jim Villa, the Vice President for University Relations who led the UW System’s communications and lobbying efforts during the critical budget negotiations of Spring 2015, we have a rare opportunity for a cost-saving measuring that will do no harm to the University.  Liquidating Villa’s position would save the System some $178,000 a year.  That savings could pay for the salaries of two junior professors or even more instructors or support staff.  Based on the evidence from last year, we are confident that President Ray Cross and his remaining office staff will do no worse advocating for the University System without a special lobbyist.
