Regents to Discuss 2011 University System Budget
The Arizona Board of Regents will be asked Thursday to approve the fiscal year 2011 initial all-funds operating budget for the state's three universities and the board's central office.
The budget encompasses state and nonstate dollars, including revenue from tuition, self-supporting units, gifts and grants, and other sources. It also outlines estimated expenditures in the areas of instruction, organized research, public service, academic support, student services and institutional support.
The initial all-funds operating budget provides the board the first opportunity to review university and ABOR office operating budgets by major funding categories, according to the agenda for the two-day meeting at Arizona State University.
The proposed 2011 budget for the state university system totals $4.8 billion, up 4.6 percent from $4.6 billion in 2010. read more »
