BUDGET NEWS UPDATE
The CNAS Budget Committee will meet on Tuesday, February 14. We will review the guiding principles adopted by the BOG last week and then determine if there are any other guiding principles as CNAS moves forward. I know that you are having some departmental discussions. My hope is that we come out stronger after this rather than weaker. These are tough decisions. There are great ideas that are being considered that will keep us moving forward in a positive direction.
The withhold that Missouri State received earlier this year ($6,317,673) is coming from reserves. The provost’s office was responsible for $1,700,000 of the total. CNAS was responsible for $65,983.28. This money will be transferred out of CNAS within the week.
· CNAS Public Lectures – Our speaker for March 21 is Dr. Larry Campbell. He will be talking about his recent trip – Following the Missouri River
