In order to be mindful of all of the extra workload created by the disruptions that the novel coronavirus has caused, the committee co-chairs, in consultation with Ana Karaman and Dr. Fuller, have decided to suspend this year’s Phase 2 UBAC process until further notice.
We expect to give more details about the process once we have settled in to the term. As much as we think that this process is valuable to WOU, it isn’t as critical as all of the efforts going into serving our students at this moment. We will wait to see how things develop before making any decisions about rescheduling.
The University Budget Advisory Committee (UBAC) is an advisory group consisting of representation from faculty, classified staff, unclassified exempt staff, students and administrators. This body is advisory to the President and all members shall be appointed by the President based on recommendations from appropriate constituencies. The UBAC will make recommendations to the President prior to finalizing budget recommendations from the President to the Board of Trustees. Final funding recommendations are expected to have clear linkages to the University’s Strategic Plan.
