During a meeting yesterday with Chancellor Reed and all campus presidents, the enclosed chart (pdf) was distributed that outlines the 2011/12 Fiscal Year cuts for each campus and is based on the $500 million reduction contained in Governor Brown's original budget proposal. As the chart indicates, our share of the current cut is $7,567,000.
The University Budget Advisory Committee meets again tomorrow (3/18) and will be addressing this information and the overall budget planning process moving forward.
As I noted in my previous message, the UBAC meetings are open, and I encourage you to visit our budget website for the full schedule and details on discussion items. In addition, you will find a comments and suggestions link on the CSU Stanislaus budget central page and an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) to submit input. I encourage you to use these tools to provide constructive ideas and feedback.
Thank you for your continued hard work and devotion to our students during these difficult times.
Hamid Shirvani, President
