Faculty University Priorities Committee

The Faculty University Priorities Committee (FUPC) reports to the Faculty Assembly and is advisory to the President and Provost on university priorities.  The Committee is charged with providing faculty input in setting priorities for strategic planning and budgeting.  It is not restricted to consideration of academic priorities.

The Committee prepares an annual report to the President and Provost that identifies priorities and makes recommendations for future budgets.  The Faculty Priorities Committee receives reports and briefings on the annual operating budget and considers relevant budget matters arising in the annual budget preparation process.  In times of financial exigency, the Faculty Priorities Committee serves as the Budget Planning Advisory Committee did in the past to assist the President, Provost and Vice Presidents in developing principles and setting priorities for budget reductions.
