The purpose of the Academic Affairs Budget Committee will be to receive the proposed budgets of the collegiate budget committees, as well as the provost’s academic areas, and those portions of student affairs that report through the provost. The Academic Affairs Budget Committee will then evaluate the various budget scenarios from a university-wide perspective.
It is expected that there will be dialogue between the collegiate budget committees and the Academic Affairs Budget Committee. This collegial give and take should enable more informed budget decisions. It is expected that this committee will recommend appropriate budget actions to the Executive Budget Committee.
As part of its work, the committee may choose to analyze and make recommendations regarding faculty staffing to achieve the mission and goals, with input from the college committees.
Chair, Academic Affairs Budget Committee
