University Priorities and Budget Committee
The University Priorities and Budget committee was established by Chancellor Michael Hooker in 1997. It continues in existence and operation until further notice. The committee is directed to advise [the University's chief administrative officers] regarding University priorities and overall strategies for achieving them, and regarding overall budget allocation from all available sources. At the direction of [the administration] the UPBC will examine and update the University's priorities, and will monitor and evaluate the University's progress in achieving the integration of the University's priorities in day-to-day activities of the University. The [administration] will commission studies (e.g., enrollment, faculty salaries, facilities, and other operations) to form the basis of understanding current activities and the consequences of change to financial plans.
