A process is under way 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 I have stated on several occasions and in my message to the campus community on February 2, we are currently facing a projected budgetary shortfall of $7 million. This gap will be addressed over three years, beginning with a $1.4 million reduction for the 2017–2018 academic year. A $2.8 million reduction will follow in both 2018–2019 and 2019–2020.
