College and University Budgeting: An Introduction for Faculty and Academic Administrators. Third Edition
Goldstein, Larry
National Association of College and University Business Officers (NJ3)
The intended audience for this primer includes new academic administrators and faculty members who seek involvement in campus governance and need a greater understanding of administrative processes, particularly those related to budgets and budgeting. After reading this publication, readers will have a better understanding of the budget process at their institutions. They will be able to ask meaningful questions about the process and budget components, and they will be equipped to make valuable contributions. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to budgets and the budgetary process, with a brief explanation of why budgeting is an important element of policy making. Chapter 2 addresses the broader economic and political contexts of budgeting and describes the framework for the budgetary process--both on and off campus. Chapter 3 introduces the factors that shape a budget process and identifies the differences in processes used by various campuses. Chapter 4 focuses on participants' roles as they seek to influence the operating and capital budgets. Chapter 5 explores the sensitive issue of budgeting during extremely difficult fiscal situations--including retrenchment, potentially the most serious situation an institution might ever encounter. Approaches to Budgeting are appended. A glossary and an index are included. Individual chapters contain notes. (Contains 6 figures.)
