Maintaining access and affordability guides proposed FY 18 U of M budget - University of Minnesota

Through continued reprioritization and reallocation, combined with other factors, University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler’s proposed FY 18 operating budget maintains a commitment to access and affordability for all U of M students. The University’s Board of Regents will review Kaler’s recommended $3.9 billon operating budget on Thursday, June 8, and is expected to take action during a special meeting on June 20. “While it is challenging to build a budget that achieves strategic goals and advances the University’s excellence in the face of rising costs and limited revenue growth, this budget successfully addresses key priorities I share with the Board,” said Kaler. “It does so by investing to build and maintain excellence, by incorporating a tuition and fee plan that is responsive to the needs of students and sensitive to market conditions, and by challenging all units within the University to prioritize and improve efficiency in strategic ways.”
