The board of governors passed the 2009-10 budget that included federal stimulus money that is one-time money. This is the link to the preliminary estimate of the University Distribution of FY 2009/10.
It should be noted that the board of governors proposed a 4% increase to the legislature for 2010-11. However, this only is catch-up money and we anticipate it will include stimulus money again. That means that while we are working on 2010-11, we really need to keep an eye on what is unfolding for 2011-12.

May 17, 2010Completing Phase 1
After months of meetings, workshops and open forums during which the entire University community was invited to share ideas as to how we could reduce our 2010-11 budget deficit, we now have a working plan.
As I wrote in my e-mail announcing the plan, I am incredibly appreciative of your suggestions and critical thinking. You helped to inform and shape the decisions represented in this plan. While everyone may not agree on each and every recommendation, everyone did have an opportunity to participate in the process.
Detailed plans for each of the divisions are posted on this site for your review. Two of our sister institutions, Kutztown and Millersville, have also announced budget reduction plans for 2010/11. You can read summaries of their plans under the budget news link.(more)
