UTSA plans town hall meetings on budget

UTSA plans town hall meetings on budget

(March 12, 2018) -- To advance its strategic vision as an institution of operational and infrastructure excellence, UTSA is hosting a set of finance and budget town hall meetings for members of the campus community.

Starting this month, the Finance and Budget Modeling Task Force will host two town hall meetings that will give UTSA students, faculty and staff an opportunity to learn more about the progress of the President's Initiative on Finance & Budget Modeling. The sessions will kick off with updates from the task force’s chairs, followed by open dialogue and questions. Attendees will learn more about budgeting at UTSA and budget model options under consideration.

Finance and Budget Model Town Halls

  • Tuesday, March 27, 1:30 to 3 p.m., Student Union Retama Auditorium (SU 2.02.02), Main Campus
  • Wednesday, March 28, 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Frio Street Building (FS 1.512), Downtown Campus

Last fall, President Eighmy charged the Finance and Budget Modeling Task Force with creating a strong foundation for UTSA’s fiscal health and laying the groundwork for the growth and innovation to come. Since that time, the task force has been working to create a new budget model that is transparent and data-driven, supports entrepreneurship and innovation, and aligns resources needed for the university’s strategic mission, vision and themes.

“This highly committed task force has been meeting since October to ensure that our budget process employs the best financial practices and carefully examines input from experts in higher education budgeting and across each of the university’s divisions,” said Kathryn Funk-Baxter, UTSA vice president for business affairs and chair of the Finance and Budget Modeling Task Force.
