University Budget Committee

Purpose of the Committee:

The University Budget Committee (UBC) is charged with providing the President with advice and recommendations related to budget policy, planning, and review. The UBC is comprised of SF State faculty, staff, students, and administrators. Members of the UBC, with a shared commitment to fiscal transparency, serve to inform the University and community about budget matters, and bring to the administration concerns of students, faculty and staff. The UBC meets year-round, with a minimum of two meetings a semester plus additional meetings as needed.

Meetings are open to the public with an Open Forum period to provide interested members of the campus community an opportunity to address their related comments and concerns to the committee.

Committee meetings are announced in Campus Memo prior to the meeting date.
