  • Bill will get cost-to-student data from the Financial Aid office.
  • the 5-year budget model will be starting point for the budget development model, and a new “Budget Change Recommendation” form will track the requests.
  • reports will be sent to campus along with the minutes.
    • June/July – annual budget report
    • October and March – current year budget updates
    • August – review of year-end operations

There was lengthy discussion of university costs to students, with the conversation focusing on book costs, jobs vs. student life, size of classes, quality of entry level courses, etc., from both student and faculty perspectives.

A continued discussion on capacity, found in the Budget Model Categories handout, is planned for the next meeting. Also on the agenda will be an updated contribution surplus analysis and current service levels. Budget impact of the new strategic plan was also missed in this week’s agenda, and will be picked up next time.

Please forward any agenda items to Bill or Nancy by next week.

The next meeting of the CBC is Tuesday, October 9 at 7:30am in HUB 119.
