Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty Meeting 11 April 2017 Overview
This years budget Next years budget Right sizing our college
Lets remember why we are here. Closing FY 16-17 The college is $100K-$200K short We will close the books with a $0 balance by Saving whatever we can (If you have unspent money, we need it!)
Exhausting F&A in units that are short Aggressively moving expenses to gift funds where allowed/appropriate Well make it through this year but what about next? Next Years (FY17-18) Budget Dean Tillman: The days of easy
money are over! Dean Cahill: Were cutting our budget again this year. The Big Picture University will return $11.6M (w/ no additional cuts)
Why? We missed our 12-cell matrix projections 12-cell matrix linked to enrollment; we over-estimated Provost will divide his $7.1M reduction as follows: $4.6M reserves (this year only) $2.5M academic units capped at < 1% of base Our colleges share: -$789,874 in SCH funding FY 17-18 (we went under)
+$676,590 in SCH funding FY 18-19 (we hit targets) But: provost shares 50% of change, + 1% cap = -$353,381 for our college FY 17-18 +$296,752 for our college FY 18-19 Are we Ready for Winter? Deans reserve for FY17-18 = $500K
$353,381 goes back to provost 1 July $10,598 goes back to provost/GA for retention funds of faculty who resigned or retired $142,684 goes to departments for new commitments Targets of opportunity, retentions, spousal accommodations, etc. Leaves us -$6K entering this year
Implications: No float Funds for new hires not guaranteed (depends on enrollment and resignations/retirements) Right-Sizing Our College
Principles to Drive Allocations Funding for departments should be at/near the college mean for 12-cell matrix $ Example for Dept. X 12-cell funding formula generates $5M (15-16 SCH) FY16-17 expenditures $4.5M Dept. funding = 90% of expenditures
College average = 90% of expenditures Dept. X is at college average Therefore, FY17-18 budget remains the same (no change) Funding Ratios for College Departments FY16-17 Expenditures/12-Cell SCH $
% of Funding Formula 117.84% 120% 112.13%
110% 99.40% 100% 90% 83.95%
78.01% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40%
30% 20% 10% 0% 48.43%
86.35% 87.37% 89.79% 92.74%
Strategies for Right-Sizing Increase credit hour production Data-informed course offerings, scheduling, etc. Increase student enrollment for majors, spring admits in 2018, meet GEP needs Meet graduate enrollment targets!
Decrease expenditures College collects from departments > mean College allocates to departments < mean Tactical Responses DE flex: Overload vs. general support Summer school (you keep 85% of what you make)
Increase credit hour production w/out increasing costs Consider new/innovative models (e.g., online adaptive learning, flip lectures, large sections/TAs) Consider fairness within and among departments TA assignments vary from 1st semester 2/2 load to 3rd year 1/1 load across departments. Consider course load assignments by scholarship,
subsidizing external entities (e.g., journals), engagement in graduate committees, etc. Principles to Drive Budget Changes Changes should be gradual & predictable Initially: Ensure all departments have base budget to cover staff, T/TT faculty, and graduate assistantships
Eventually: Right size with understanding that some nuance needed (e.g., writing intensive courses) Fairness requires consistency (but not rigidity) across college I will do my part: Deans office (including salaries) 7.4% of total state $ Institutes and centers 1.2% of total state $
