With budget tight UW chancellors must now approve all hirings
For now, anybody who wants a job at a University of Wisconsin campus will have to get the chancellor's blessing.
University president Kevin Reilly tightened hiring procedures on the 26 campuses today (Friday).
He said chancellors must now approve all new hirings and they should only fill jobs which are most essential to the UW's mission.
The order came just two days after Gov. Jim Doyle said the deficit for the next budget had grown from $3 billion to $5 billion.
