Budget and Planning/Tuition Advisory Committee


The Budget, Planning and Tuition Advisory Committee shall consist of 12 voting members, five teaching faculty, one from the College of Education, one from the College of Business, one from the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and one from the College of STM and Health Sciences, one librarian; three administrative professionals; two ASEOU student government representatives with the option of adding students to fulfill the Oregon Senate Bill 242 requirements and two classified staff. In addition, the Vice President of Finance and Administration or designee shall serve non-voting ex officio. The Finance and Administration will ensure fiscal and budget staff support is available for the meetings. The Institutional Research Office, the Information Technology Department and the Facilities/Planning department will also provide a representative to be available for the meetings.

At the November 2019 meeting, the committee voted to incorporate the duties of the Tuition Advisory Committee into the current bylaws of the Budget and Planning Committee. This change ensured a smoother process with more informed members of the full committee. The revised bylaws were approved at the January 2020 Budget and Planning Meeting, and a new title was given to this committee. Bylaw changes were put in to place by the University Committee during the 2020-21 year.  These changes incorporated the Tuition Advisory Committee Charge from HB4141 into the Budget and Planning Charge.
