A process is underway at Buffalo State College to strategically manage available resources and create greater efficiencies for ongoing program costs. This process will bring together members of the campus community so we can respond to the significant financial challenges we face resulting from multiple years of declining state support and, more recently, declining enrollments. Tuition paid by students is the single largest source of revenue that supports Buffalo State’s budget. For 2017/18 we are projecting a deficit of as much as $7.4 million between our projected revenue and projected operating expenses on an all-funds basis.
The goal of the budget rebalancing process is to develop a plan to close the deficit in a strategic manner to ensure fiscal integrity, increase efficiencies, and assist the campus in functioning with optimal effectiveness. In this way we can best achieve our mission of providing students with a meaningful, relevant and empowering educational experience.
Dear Members of the Buffalo State Community,
As part of my address to the campus community in October, I shared with you a broad overview of the budgetary challenges we face and previewed some of the steps that we will take together to rebalance our campuswide expenditures to match available resources. I am writing to provide an update on those efforts.
