In August 2019, Chancellor Plowman assembled a group of faculty and staff to begin redesigning our budget model.
Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor David Manderscheid and Senior Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Chris Cimino are serving as co-chairs of the steering committee. This committee will examine the university’s current approach to resource allocation and develop a set of recommendations for a new resource management, allocation and planning process. The new Budget Allocation Model will achieve the following goals:
- Align resources with strategic priorities
- Create greater transparency and accountability
- Give units more control over their own budgets
Steering committee updates will be posted to this site, and shared with Deans, faculty senate and campus fiscal officers. A campus open forum is scheduled on October 22nd from 9:00am to 10:00am in the Student Union Ballroom 272C.
