Why Community College Budgets MatterMarch 23, 2017 |
by Michael A. Elam
As the 2016-2017 fiscal year winds down, the college administration is heavily involved in many budget decisions that test our ability to effectively manage institutional resources to last till the end of the year and maintain a balanced budget. We have also begun the budget planning process for the next year.
Unfortunately, we always have to plan for budget cuts and worst case scenarios. We have been very encouraged by what has been proposed by the Governor in his budget but there is so much ground to cover before the final budget is agreed upon.
