Thoughts about this Core Quality
The Resources Committee of the Madison Future Commission concluded that the current university funding model could not be sustained long term. In fact, that was the most important strategic issue listed by the committee. The Academics Committee made consistent and repeated reference to the importance of the university’s resources in supporting the academic mission. The Board of Visitors added that the university will require financial, facility and technological resources to meet its goals. These sentiments resulted in the drafting of this core quality.
