Budget Advisory Committee

In January 2024, President Feinstein began convening a Budget Advisory Committee to keep key constituencies informed regarding the university’s FY2025 budget planning process and efforts to optimize budget outcomes.


The Budget Advisory Committee will be an advisory body to the president and will acquire knowledge and understanding of the university budgeting process in order to provide input and recommendations to inform FY2025 budget planning and efforts to align resources with university strategic priorities. Members will represent the perspective of their respective constituencies, participate in a collaborative process, and serve as a conduit for information-sharing back to their groups.
