Budget and Planning/Tuition Advisory Committee


The Budget and Planning/Tuition Advisory Committee shall consist of 12 voting members, four (4) teaching faculty, two (2) from the College of Arts and Sciences, and two (2) from the Colleges of Education and Business, with one (1) from Education and one (1) from Business; one (1) librarian; three (3) administrative faculty; two (2) students and two (2) classified staff. In addition, the Vice President for Finance and Administration shall serve non-voting ex officio. The office of Finance and Administration will provide a budget analyst to be available for the meetings. The Institutional Research Office will also provide a analyst 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 by laws of the Budget and Planning Committee.  This change will ensure a smoother process with more informed members of the full committee.  The revised by laws were approved at the January 2020 Budget and Planning Meeting, and a new title was given to this committee.   By law changes are pending action by the University Committee. This action will take place during the 2020-21 year.  This change incorporates the Tuition Advisory Committee Charge from HB4141 into the Budget and Planning Charge.
