EHE College Budget Advisory Committee


Purpose

The College of Education and Human Ecology aspires to be a center of excellence in research and scholarly programs focusing on the complex issues affecting individuals, families, schools, and consumers in our global communities. The College Budget Committee's suggested list of "Attributes of a Budgeting System" seeks to strengthen our commitment to and collective efforts in support of our vision. The committee is formed to advise the Dean on budget as it impacts efficiency, effectiveness, excellence, and academic and strategic plans.

The budget system is based on the principles that all sources are interchangeable, that quality, predictability and stability are paramount, and that consultation with, and advice of faculty, staff, students and administrators are critical. Furthermore, systems, reporting and monitoring of the budget and its impact are recognized as integral to continuous improvement of the budget structure. It is assumed that the college budgeting system is compatible with the University budget system, goals and procedures and is supportive of college values and goals.

Desirable Attributes of the College Budget System

  • Adaptable
  • Transparent and articulated
  • Encourages accountability and responsibility at the appropriate level
  • Encourages cooperation
  • Recognizes the need for common (college-wide) resources & services
  • Recognizes the need to manage risk
  • Aligns responsibility with commensurate authority
  • Not punitive
  • Minimizes complexity
  • Links to strategic plans and Discovery Themes, as appropriate
