Campus Budget Presentations on April 22

Dear Colleagues:

Late last fall a communication was shared with you to hold the date of April 22, 2016 for campus budget presentations. This date has now been confirmed and you are cordially invited to attend all or part of the budget presentations on Friday, April 22 from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in 201 Blue Ridge Ballroom inside the Plemmons Student Union.

Please refer to the tentative presentation schedule within this message. Although most of the day will consist of presentations, I draw your attention to the Question and Answer Session from 10:00-10:30 a.m. The campus community will also have an opportunity following the budget presentations to provide additional input via a dedicated webpage devoted to the 2016 Budget Presentations, which will be housed on the Institutional Research, Assessment and Planning (IRAP) website. We will also live-video stream the budget presentations for those not able to attend in person.

The ultimate goal of budget presentations is twofold.

First, divisions (Chancellors Office, Academic Affairs, Business Affairs, Student Development, Athletics and Advancement), degree granting units and the Library, will share their respective unit 2015-2016 academic year accomplishments connected to the strategic plan and make recurring budget funding requests to underwrite future needs identified in their unit planning processes. Secondly, the budget presentations will provide budget transparency to the entire campus and enable university leadership to plan for resource allocation over the next 1-3 years.

Deans will work with chairs and faculty over the next several weeks for input into unit priorities for the budget presentations. Deans and Vice Chancellors will submit: (a) a short PowerPoint and (b) a budget presentation narrative to Academic Affairs by April 15, 2016. These deliverables will be posted to the Budget Presentations 2016 webpage. Non-degree granting units within Academic Affairs have also been asked to submit a budget presentation narrative to be posted. Units within other divisions should consult with their respective vice chancellor's office regarding their participation in this process.

The budget presentations are connected to, and dovetail with, the Institutional Effectiveness Cycle (I.E.) which includes the periodic comprehensive reviews. For example, colleges who have completed the IE cycle may utilize their IE summary reports to assist with their budget presentations.

I thank you in advance for your input prior to April 22nd, your attendance on April 22nd, and your patience with us as we embark on Budget Presentations beginning this spring. In future years we intend to refine this process with input from the campus community.
