Committees

Jeff Wilson, Interim Vice President & CFO, works closely with members of the President’s Cabinet, Academic Affairs, Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, University Advancement, University Enterprises, and the Academic Senate through various committees that work to execute priorities set by the CSU and by the President of the University. 

The membership of these committees represent a diverse cross-section of the University community. They include University deans, faculty, associate vice presidents, directors, staff, and students to ensure these committees have multiple perspectives that will help advance the University's mission.

University Budget 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.

The ARC Committee will champion the resultant strategies and be charged with communicating them to each member’s respective areas. A common language for managing risk and identifying appropriate controls will be established with a balanced view; one that attempts to minimize hazards, influence and control uncertainties, and manages opportunities.

Time, Place, and Manner Committee

Freedom of expression at SF State is subject to reasonable restrictions of time, place, and manner. Through the University Executive Directive (UED) 89-13 on Time, Place, & Manner (effective as of January 1, 2018), the University seeks to foster and sustain a forum for the free and orderly exchange of ideas, values and opinions. It also endeavors to ensure that the exercise of the right of free expression does not imperil public safety, obstruct or damage University facilities, or interfere with the University’s educational mission and functions. The TPM Committee meets to discuss issues related to the TPM Executive Directive.
