MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The 26 UW campuses lost almost 1,200 faculty members during the two years ending June 30th.
A new report to the Board of Regents shows that over 650 of the instructors retired. All of them had their jobs secure through tenure.
Almost 500 faculty members resigned, and about 185 were tenured. We don't know if there's a trend.
The report did not list faculty departures during previous two-year budget periods.
UW spokesman David Giroux says the university does not have figures from past years.
