As the University strives to achieve its Strategic Plan, the annual budget process is an integral part of identifying the best use of limited resources. Each year colleges, academic affair units, and non-academic affair units are asked to identify funding needed to meet our strategic goals. In addition, all stakeholders are invited to submit funding requests for university-wide strategic initiatives. These requests will be reviewed by the Provost and Chancellor's Cabinet with their recommendations being submitted to the Budget Review and Recommendation Committee for review. The Committee recommendations are submitted to the Chancellor for final budgetary approval. The Chancellor communicates the final budget to the campus. The flowchart below provides more detail.
