Help build the budget for UTC
Take your mind off the winter blahs and direct it toward money—specifically, the way we spend it at UTC.
“In the coming weeks, there will be opportunities to participate in budget conversations at multiple levels across the campus. I hope that this open approach to building a budget will give everyone an opportunity to share their opinions and offer ideas that will lead to comprehensive budget proposals from each college and division,” said Chancellor Steve Angle.
Governor Bill Haslam’s continued commitment to make higher education a priority in his administration is encouraging. Though UTC administrators have heard reports from Nashville that state revenue collections are weaker than projected, we do not know how our state funding will be affected as we begin our budget talks.
“I am pleased to tell you that our campus is fiscally strong. Previous administrations have been wise stewards of resources, and because of this prudent planning, we are well positioned moving forward,” Angle said.
Join the Chancellor on Wednesday, February 19, 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the Raccoon Mountain Room for the kickoff of the budgeting process. There will be a campus-wide overview of our current budget, the projections and parameters for establishing next year’s budget, and an explanation of the 2014-15 budgeting process.
Your suggestions and ideas are welcome! Submit them to the Budget Chatt website.
