**Special UPDC Announcement**
During the past weeks there have been difficult conversations concerning the impact of the upcoming budget cuts to UWSP. Unfortunately, in light of these cuts, the Provost has made the decision to not fund any further UPDC grants for the remainder of the semester. Please know that everyone involved in this conversation has expressed a profound sense of regret that we feel compelled to take this action. Obviously, we will hope to restore the various grant opportunities once we have a better understanding of the final budget. Please contact Greg Summers (4686) with any questions you may have concerning this decision.
