Core principles

The Budget Framework Advisory Committee has assisted in development of the following core principles: 

  • Our commitment to students' success and experience will not be compromised. 
  • The good of the university as a whole drives the discussion of resource allocation adjustments. 
  • Administration and faculty have shared responsibility and accountability to support responsible financial management. 

Throughout this process, we will hold firm to our principles and primary mission by: 

  • Continuing to make progress on the strategic plan goals identified in “To Boldly Go.” 
  • Continuing to invest in infrastructure needs. 
  • Leveraging and diversifying our activities appropriately across all fund sources and strategically growing fund sources to support our mission and goals. 
  • Enabling all employees to work smarter and direct their effort toward the most benefit for the university. 
  • Using benchmarks and data in decision-making. 
  • Weighing long-term risks and return on investments.
