What’s Going On “Inside” the Global Challenge States?

Now that the future fiscal fortunes of the UW have been statutorily linked to the 60th percentile of per student funding in the Global Challenge States, it probably makes some sense to periodically peak in on how things are going for our higher education university brethren in California, Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Colorado, and Connecticut.

To that end, I have posted a new report under the Spotlight section of the State Relations website titled “Global Challenge State Update.”  The goal of this report, which I intend to update quarterly, is to provide UW officials and others with a quick and “easy to digest” sense of how our competitor institutions are faring in obtaining funding from their respective Governors and state legislatures.

I hope you will find this report interesting and valuable.
