Budget Advisory Committee


The University is committed to an open and transparent budget process. The purpose of the Budget Advisory Committee is to provide a formal mechanism for broad stakeholder participation in the development of the University’s annual budget.

The Committee’s purpose is to discuss budget objectives, directions and outcomes and provide input and advice to the President as the budget is developed during the year. The Committee will also provide input and advice on the University’s facilities plans and priorities. Participation in the development of the budget also enables Committee members to be informed on budget issues and decisions so that they can take back the rationale and results from the budget process to their constituent groups.
