The University Resources & Planning Committee hosted a campus forum on budget planning on Nov. 7, the first of two campus meetings related to the URPC’s work to develop a three-year balanced budget plan. It included a presentation on context as well as interactive opportunities for individuals to provide input.
There are a number of ways for the University community to learn more and continue providing feedback on-campus budget planning, all of which are available on the Budget website.
— Review the budget overview presentation that was given at the budget forum.
— Rank campus values and priorities in terms of how they should be considered during budget planning. A link will be on the right-column of the Budget Office website.
— Share your budget-saving ideas using the form on the Budget Office website.
— Create your idea for a balanced budget using a new budget simulator.
— Read the new budget planning FAQs related to the current planning effort.
In addition to operational efficiencies, HSU is prioritizing close review of vacant positions, internal searches, and reassignments in order to preserve employment of current staff and provide growth opportunities within the institution. This is necessary due to campus budget and enrollment realities. Read an overview of the process for backfilling staff positions.
A follow-up forum is planned for Tuesday, December 3, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., in Goodwin Forum. It will provide a chance to review the URPC’s draft plan prior to submission.
