Budget Process Humanities and Public Affairs Collegiate Budget Committee

Planning for the FY14 budget

The purpose of the collegiate budget committee is to develop recommendations born of collaborative assessments of the goals of the departments as part of a college, as part of a larger university — working together to promote student learning and the public interest. These recommendations should be based on the level of funding assigned to Missouri State University. The deans are responsible for leading that process in a manner that serves the students, faculty and staff of the college as well as the larger organization and student body. As part of its work, the committee may choose to analyze and make recommendations regarding faculty staffing to achieve the mission and goals.
