Academic Planning and Budget

The Academic Planning and Budget Committee meets every other week throughout the academic year to provide advice on academic policies and procedures, interdisciplinary and cross-school efforts, strategic planning issues, research support and regulations, budgetary issues, and such matters as faculty and minority gender equity, early retirement, and personnel benefits. It also advises the Provost on school and center external review recommendations and proposed new academic degrees and new research institutes.

The membership of the Committee consists of the Provost, who serves as Chair; nine faculty members, five selected by the Faculty Senate and four by the Provost; two administrative members named by the Provost; and two undergraduate and two graduate/professional students, nominated by the appropriate undergraduate and graduate processes. Members of the Provost’s staff may also attend for informational purposes.
