UW officials say the state's furloughs might disrupt some classes
The provost at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee says classes will not be canceled because of the furloughs instructors will have to take.
But the 25 other UW campuses have not put out such guarantees and university spokesman David Giroux promises that class disruptions will be kept to a minimum.
Gov. Jim Doyle has ordered all state employees, including those at the UW, to take 16 unpaid days off during the next two years to help close the state's budget deficit.
