Budget Reform

Based on feedback from the Provost’s Council of Deans and the Campus Budget Advisory Task Force, the Office of the Provost has committed to leading a comprehensive reform of the current budgeting process.

The guiding principle for budget reform is to develop and incorporate a system that permits colleges/schools to define their paths while allowing the campus to invest strategically. The system should be integrated with campus strategic priorities, work across disciplines, and support all mission areas. It should also have the flexibility to allow for investments at the college and university levels that support our values and University-wide excellence. Based on these fundamental principles, we have entitled the budgeting framework Integrated and Value-Centered Budgeting.
