George Mason budget reduction

给个美国学校经费削减的例子,是上周五George Mason University(GMU)的。
 
总结:GMU经费削减7%,也就是980万。GMU看来财政情况还可以,学校明确说了,不考虑提高学费或者减少奖学金,980万的削减看来可以通过节省开支来解决。
 
GMU在virginia,VA政治地位高,州里经费情况算是不错的,而且也不是房地产的灾区。

Subject: Important Information on State Budget Issues

 
On Thursday, Oct 9th, the Governor released budget information on reductions for the current budget year (FY 2009). Mason will experience a 7% budget reduction, or $9.8 million. Units have submitted budget reduction plans and will be notified by the end of next week regarding the specific amount of their unit cuts. The Governor also announced a delay of the previously planned 2% salary increase for state employees until July 1, 2009. The current budget reduction cannot be addressed through an additional tuition increase this year or through any reductions in financial aid. At this level of budget reduction Mason was not considering either action.
 
An open forum on the budget situation and the University’s response will be held on Tuesday, October 14, at 11:00 a.m., Johnson Center Cinema, with Senior VP Scherrens and Provost Stearns.
 
No information has been released for FY 2010 except that a larger overall savings will be sought in FY 2010.
Morrie Scherrens, Senior Vice President
Peter Stearns, Provost
