UW-Madison is piloting a new summer fiscal model for 2016 that is a critical vehicle for Summer Term growth. Created by a campus-wide committee charged by Provost Sarah Mangelsdorf, the pilot model will better meet student needs and contribute to the financial stability of the university. The pilot model creates incentives for schools and colleges to increase revenue, control costs, and adjust summer offerings to meet student demand.
