The Battle of Wisconsin rages on. With the University of Wisconsin System's Board of Regents set to meet Thursday to hear a proposal for greater flexibility for all of the system's campuses, the chancellor of Wisconsin's flagship campus at Madison urged the university's supporters to lobby for its own autonomy plan over the system's proposal. In a letter to the Madison campus, Chancellor Carolyn A. (Biddy) Martin said that the system's Wisconsin Idea Partnership "does not come close to doing for UW-Madison what public-authority status would," and that it is time for them to "express [their] support more openly and visibly." She asked them to ask legislators for their support, and to speak out "as individuals, citizens and taxpayers, and not on behalf of the university."
