Joint Planning & Budget Committee Update
The Joint Planning and Budget Committee (JPBC) is a presidential advisory committee representing the college community. It serves as the institutional oversight body to ensure that institutional goals and division level planning and budgeting are interlinked and informed by assessment to advance the strategic goals and priorities established in Building a Better Brockport, the strategic plan for the College. The committee meets on select Thursdays from 8:30 - 10:30 am throughout the academic year.
JPBC met twice in November. The five-year financial model update was presented at the beginning of the month along with the 21-22 annual report of the Campus Based Fee Review Committee. Later in the month, a comprehensive report on undergraduate enrollment and retention was provided including a summary of some strategies being implemented to boost both enrollment and retention.
The working group of JPBC continues to meet as they seek to develop recommendations so that the campus will not operate under a structural deficit. A variety of revenue generating and cost saving strategies are being considered. Any suggestions for the working group can be submitted to Darson Rhodes, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Jim Wall, email@example.com.
The next JPBC meeting will be held December 15, and it will include budget presentations from BASC and DIFR, as well as an update on current staff levels (i.e. current openings, projected retirements, etc.). A meeting link will be shared in the Daily Eagle.
