Deans Council Meeting Notes 9/30/2020

UAA Provost Denise Runge

The Dean’s Council, along with Faculty Senate E-Board, has engaged in discussion of a potential model for allocation of future General Fund Appropriation dollars. This has been undertaken recognizing the fact that 7 years of substantial budget cuts and accumulated incremental decrements likely have resulted in allocations that no longer reflect our values of equity and transparency of budgeting, nor our academic priorities as a university.

Topic: A Plan to Allocate General Fund Dollars Among the Colleges and Academic Units Why talk about this? Current allocation among the colleges is based on historic allocations plus accumulated increments/decrements over time. It is unclear whether the resulting allocation is appropriate to the current mission, size, and scope of each college. Therefore our task is to create a process that will be used in future allocations, in order to ensure mission fulfillment and to incentivize needed improvements.
