Campus Budget Forum

To: UMD Campus Community

From: Chancellor Lendley C. Black

Subject: Campus Budget Forum

You are invited to a Campus Budget Forum on Tuesday, February 19 from 12-1:30 p.m. in the Kirby Ballroom.

For the first half of the forum, Mike Seymour, Vice Chancellor for Finance and Operations, will join me in providing an update on the legislative process and its impact on the upcoming biennial budget. We will also provide an overview of how the UMD budgeting model is being changed to best meet the campus needs. During the second half of the forum, faculty and staff will meet in smaller groups within their administrative areas to discuss the impact of the change in the budgeting process.

We encourage you to join us for this important discussion. I hope that your semester is going well, and I would like to thank you again for all that you do for UMD and the success of its students.
