Just for Deans! Webinar on February 19th – Finance and Budget

The next webinar in our Just for Deans series is coming up on February 19th at 11am.  The attached flyer and information below is about the session on finance and budget issues for deans.

WHEN:  February 19, 2015 – 11:00-12:00

Finance and Budget

The fiscal backdrop for deans can often be confusing and certainly is complex. While MnSCU institutions take their own unique approaches to academic and financial planning, there are many common aspects that need to be understood and advanced by deans regardless of your college or university. This session will cover foundational aspects such as the MnSCU allocation framework, campus approaches to budget allocation, and the associated impact of enrollment and compensation on the financial planning of institutions. The presenting chief financial officers will not only share their knowledge of these foundational aspects but also relate it to the many variables associated with academic planning such as class sizes and course fill rates, program review, faculty load, and other programmatic decisions.

Note:  This session has some ‘homework’ that is helpful in setting a knowledge base prior to the session.  These suggested items are in the flyer.

The flyer also provides a webinar schedule through July.  Let me know if you’d like to recommend a facilitator (and it is ok to volunteer yourself) for one of the upcoming sessions.
