Budget Advisory Committee (BAC)

Introduction

The Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) committee is intended to provide a regular channel of communication between senior administrative leaders and major campus stakeholders—faculty, staff and students—and to advise the president with respect to broad issues of financial planning.  The BAC may be asked to review issues bearing on RCM and its operation, strategic funding priorities, tuition and fee recommendations and similar matters.

The BAC will meet at least twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.  Additional meetings may be called by the committee co-chairs.
