It's budget time. The university's Budget Task Force (BTF), chaired by the academic vice president and including students, faculty, staff, and the VP for finance and administration, is charged with recommending to the president a balanced budget for the coming fiscal year that responds to Puget Sound's mission and strategic initiatives and economic factors. The recommended budget will address tuition levels, student financial aid, faculty and staff compensation budgets, and more. All campus members are invited to offer suggestions or comments relating to the development of budget parameters for 2018–19, including ideas for cost savings, by writing to the BTF, c/o Lori Johnson at CMB 1083 or lljohnson@pugetsound.edu, no later than Wednesday, Nov. 22. Once the budget recommendations are formed, BTF will share its recommendations with campus members in January, at which time campus members will be invited to submit their feedback to President Crawford before he forwards his recommendation to the board of trustees in February.
