10 things to know about Pitt’s 2021-22 budget - Susan Jones, UTimes Pitt

 Pitt’s Board of Trustees' budget and executive committees approved a 2021-22 budget on July 13 that includes tuition increases, small pay hikes, increased capital spending and a 1 percent across-the-board budget cut. In an email to the Pitt community this week, Chancellor Patrick Gallagher said: “It is important to recognize that these budgets follow an exceptionally disruptive year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. … Despite these historic disruptions, Pitt’s operating and capital budgets for fiscal year 2022 represent our institution’s first steps toward a new, post-pandemic normal and a return to in-person instruction this fall. The approved budgets balance our efforts to move on from last year’s budget disruption and begin to engage in a fuller recovery.”
