University Budget Committee

Purpose of the Committee

The University Budget Committee (“UBC”) is charged with serving as a deliberative body that provides the San Francisco State University President with ongoing advice and recommendations related to budget policy, planning, and assessment. The UBC aims to ensure that the University’s priorities are reflected in its budget through coordinated consultation, discussion, education, and outreach to the University community. The UBC is comprised of SF State faculty, staff, students and administrators. Members of the UBC, with a shared commitment to transparency in fiscal decision-making, serve to inform the University and community about budget matters, and bring concerns of the students, faculty and staff to the administration.

The UBC generally meets monthly, and holds additional meetings as needed.  Meeting dates are posted below and published in CampusMemo. All meetings are open to the public.

Future UBC Meetings

All UBC meetings are held via Zoom until further notice. Communication to the UBC is always welcome by using the feedback link to the right.
