Next Review Date: 12/01/2018 (E3Y)
Sr. Reviewer: Provost
The Budget Committee for Academic Affairs is intended to advise the Provost regarding those budget decisions that widely impact department/school budgets within the division.
As part of the budget review within the division, the Deans will incorporate input from non-administrative faculty representing each department/school into their budget reviews through the use of college councils and/or an appropriate college-level committee.
The Provost will call a meeting of the budget committee at least once per long semester.
The committee will meet to discuss and provide input on budget matters that may include:
How budget distributions reflect strategic planning: Strategic initiatives such as compensation increases, enrollment increases, and new academic programs should be reflected in budget priorities if at all possible.
Distribution of new full-time faculty: the creation of new faculty positions should meet the needs of enrollment increases and/or new academic programs approved in the strategic plan.
Changes in department adjunct faculty budgets: adjunct budgets are increased in response to sustained enrollment increases that are not fully served by new tenure track faculty.
Changes in summer budgets: summer budgets should consider summer enrollment changes and/or base compensation increases for full-time faculty.
Changes in M&O budgets: M&O budgets change according to the allocation formula (weighted 5-year average expenses, number of majors, number of faculty, etc.) governing such budgets.
