Minutes: A&S Planning and Budget Commmittee

February 13, 2003


Members present: Ying Kit Chan, Susan DeWitt, Julia Dietrich (ex officio), Stuart Esrock, Thomas Riedel (Chair), Nat Schwartz

Guest: Dean Brennan

The meeting convened at 3:05 p.m.

Dean Brennan briefed the Committee on the status of the budget situation. He has received confirmation from the President's office that the College should plan to implement a 5.3% cut plus an additional cut entailing the fourth installment of funding that is owed to the central administration as part of the reinvestment program.

The Dean is asking the Committee to issue a set of generalized recommendations and priorities for potential cuts. In so doing, he asks that the group articulate principles that should govern budget considerations. The committee's list of priorities, along with potential consequences/ramifications for each recommendation, will be drafted for the Dean early the week of February 17.

Minutes of the February 7 meeting were adopted.

The next meeting of the Planning and Budget committee will be at 2:00 p.m. on February 14 to discuss the budget situation.

The meeting adjourned at 3:55 PM.
