Budget Message From Dr. McDougle

A key issue facing the college is the preparation of the budget for the next biennium. At the present time, we are receiving little or no direction from Columbus in terms of our state subsidy. However the budget Advisory committee, under the direction of John Satkowski, is moving forward with “what if” scenarios. We are currently looking at a projection of a 20% cut in our share of state subsidy. That amounts to an $8 million dollar cut in the budget. This scenario is based on a very conservative projection of no growth in enrollment.

We are preparing our projected budget with 2 primary objectives in mind:

  1. Do everything we can in order that none of our personnel are adversely affected by layoffs, terminations, furloughs, etc.
  2. Keep tuition increase at a reasonable rate (yet to be determined). The best estimate at this point is a 6.5% tuition increase but it is a moving target based on whatever we hear from Columbus. A 6.5% tuition increase will make up approximately $2.9 million dollars of the projected shortfall.

A number of other cost saving initiatives are under consideration to make up the difference in the shortfall. We plan to schedule open forums in which we will share more detail. At this point, there are no guarantees. We will keep you posted. Your insights are welcome.

    I realize the $8 million projected deficit will be refined once the state subsidy amount is announced. Thanks for keeping us informed, especially when you gain additional information related to the anticipated state budget.
