Special UAS Staff/Faculty Budget Forum

Chancellor Pugh and the UAS Executive Committee held a forum on Friday, February 13.   The forum provided current information about the University’s budget, and an extensive question and answer session to invite ideas about strategies to increase revenues and reduce expenditures in light of the state’s budget challenges.  This forum expanded the discussion about budget priorities taking place within the UAS Strategic Planning and Budget Advisory Committee (see http://www.uas.alaska.edu/admin/spbac.html)

HANDOUT: Budget Forum Presentation

RECORDING: Recording of video conference

NOTE: In order to address any technical issues, the video conference started 30 minutes before the scheduled starting time.  Consequently, the forum starts at 32 minutes into the recording, and we suggest fast-forwarding to the actual start of the forum.  In addition, we recognize that the audio quality is poor.  We will work to address these technical issues in future forums.

History

The Strategic Planning and Budgeting Advisory Committee (SPBAC) grew out of the Strategic and Assessment Plan Executive Committee which was established after the 2009 self-study and the 2011 strategic planning process.  The Executive Committee provided overall advice to UAS leadership about implementation of the UAS Strategic and Assessment Plan, including mission, vision, and core themes. The group also had oversight for NWCCU accreditation compliance and report preparation.

In April 2013 this group was modified to become SPBAC.
