Budget Working Group

The Budget Working Group serves as an advisory committee to the senior administration and Board of Trustees on budget related matters including tuition pricing and strategic resource allocation. The Budget Working Group develops the budget plan for the upcoming year and is comprised of the Vice Presidents, Deans, University Senate Chair, Chief Information Officer, and Athletic Director.

University Budget Committee

The University Budget Committee is co-chaired by the Vice President for Finance and Vice President & Provost and comprised of all Budget Working Group members, faculty representatives, student representatives, and personnel representing academic administration, business services and auxiliaries. The University Budget Committee reviews economic and industry factors considered in developing the budget plan, and then approves the budget plan for submission to the Board of Trustees.

Budget Units

The Budget Office supports approximately 350 budget units that comprise the university’s academic, administrative, athletic, and auxiliary functions. In addition, the Budget Office collaborates with the sixteen Budget Administrators responsible for managing the financial affairs at the university’s separate schools and divisions. Although the university employs a series of standard financial policies and procedures, the decisions for allocating funds are generally made at the school or division level, consistent with the university’s decentralized budget framework.
