Call for 2019 Public Affairs Conference Speakers
Dear Faculty and Staff,
The Public Affairs Conference Advisory Committee is seeking suggestions for potential speakers to serve on panels at the University’s 2019 Public Affairs Conference. The conference theme is “The 21st Century Digital World” (see the theme document attached for more information). We hope to submit at least four solid speakers from the College of Education.
Please send your suggestions for speakers to TimPfeil@MissouriState.edu. Include in your submission the following information: Name, title, affiliation, demographic information (race/ethnicity, gender, disability, LGBTQ status, MSU alumnus, etc.), a brief bio sketch, how s/he fits “The 21st Century Digital World” theme, and how/why the person was identified (e.g. personal or professional connection? Recognized body of work? Publication?). If you would like to contact a potential speaker to gage interest that is fine, but please do not offer formal invitations yet. Send your submissions no later than close of business on Wednesday, February 13. Thank you!

FY20 Budget Information
Dr. Victor Matthews, Dean, College of Humanity & Public Affairs sent the information below from a meeting with the college deans to discuss with his department heads and budget committee:
Governor Mike Parson released his budget recommendations a couple of weeks ago.
- $16.3 million for the Missouri Excels grant program. $2.85 million of this appropriation would go toward MSU’s proposed nursing expansion.
- $22.2 million for a new program called the Fast-Track Workforce Grant Program. This program would provide tuition grants to low-income adults over the age of 25 who are working toward degree programs that fill a high-needs skills gap.
- $20 million for deferred maintenance at public universities. The $20 million would be divided equally by the universities with each receiving $2 million. (Distribution likely to be changed.)
- A $1.5 million increase for the A+ Scholarship Program, a $960,000 increase for the Access Missouri Financial Assistance Program and a $500,000 increase for the Bright Flight program.
- No core operating appropriation increases for any universities or community colleges.
- CPI for FY19 was 1.9% and a tuition increase of 1.9% = $2,197,068
- We “banked” a 1.1% increase last year and did not collect it. If we add that amount to the total increase in tuition = $854,052
- With the new HESFA legislation passed by the Legislature, we propose an additional tuition increase of 1.83% = $1,442,162
- The total tuition increase for in-state undergraduate students would be 4.83% = $4,493,284; $222.88/credit hour; $7,732 for 30 credit hours
Revenue declines and Ongoing Expenses:
- Potential Credit Hour Decline in FY2020 (given 650 students) = $4,390,360
- Second half of 1% + $600 salary increase = $1,260,450
- MOSERS increase = $1,269,020
- Additional Expenses (promotions, PSIP, software, ERP increase, etc.) = $813,206
- Potential 1.5% pay raise = $1,853,405
- Non-Recurring Items (Increased Medical, etc.) = $821,595
Result is a deficit of $5,792,754 even with the 4.83% tuition increase
The task therefore is, should we not receive equity funding from the state, how we address this shortfall and quite simply what we will have to cut.
