Northeast Modern Language Association releases a statement regarding Public Higher Education in Wisconsin

There are times when you feel even better about where you work.

One of my bosses at the Northeast Modern Language Association, Benjamin Railton, the organization’s president, released a statement on behalf of its Board Members:

In its recently passed budget bill, the state of Wisconsin has significantly eroded all of those elements. A state renowned for its public higher education system, a system that has been a model for the nation for nearly two centuries, has taken steps that will greatly weaken its public universities’ faculty and staff, departments and programs, and academic and scholarly communities. Moreover, and most importantly, these actions will likewise negatively impact the education and experiences of the tens of thousands of students served by Wisconsin’s public education system.
