Budget Committee

The Budget Committee is composed of seven faculty members. As a standing Senate Committee, at least one of the elected faculty members must be a Senator. The Provost and the College Budget Director are non-voting, ex-officio members.

Membership duties include reviewing College policies relating to long-range financial planning, budget preparation, the allocation of funds within budget categories, and the recommendation of policy changes is also included. Committee members review, in particular, projected costs of proposals for new College programs, initiatives, and program termination (brought forth by the Provost). The members inform the Senate, before these proposals are put to a vote, of the Committee’s overall evaluation of their potential budgetary impact. Finally, committee members review each annual College budget. The Chair of the Budget Committee, or a designated representative, attends meetings of the Budget Committee of the Board of Trustees.
