Operating Budget Summary and Highlights. Book A: 1976-77 Annual Budget Documentation.
Wisconsin Univ. Center System, Madison.
The period of basic redefinition of institutional missions, goals, and priorities that began with the merger of the University of Wisconsin and the State Universities in 1971 is ending with the 1976-77 fiscal year. This budget is a product of more lengthy, systematic planning with more faculty involvement than any other in the immediate past. Due to the combined effects of inflation, unfunded enrollment increases, and the general decline in support for higher education, faculties were asked to determine the number and mix of students who could be taught reputably within the constraints of projected budget resources, taking into account opportunities to reallocate resources to departments facing workload increases. This report reviews the operating budget as developed, including sources of money and operating expenses by program, expenditure classification, and institution. Major budget and program changes are reported regarding cost to continue present programs, workload changes, new and changed services, and major budget changes by institutions and program category. The University of Wisconsin System budget summary is appended. (LBH)
