The Academic Senate San Diego Division and the
Committee on Planning and Budget
cordially invite all Academic Senate Members to a

Faculty Budget Education Workshop II
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
4:00 - 5:30 pm
Powell-Focht Bioengineering Hall
Warren Mall

The workshop follows up on the one presented last October and will focus primarily on UCSD and the changing budget challenges it faces.


* New Budget Climate in Sacramento
* UCSD Growth & Recent Trends
* Changing Research Funding Environment (Sequestration)
* Uncertain Clinical Revenue Environment (Obamacare)
* New Constraints Due to Rising Mandatory Costs
* ICR, UCRP, UCPath, New Composite Benefit Rates
* Academic VC Areas & Their Funding Models

In light of the passage of Proposition 30 that avoided additional budget cuts, the new political climate in Sacramento, the on-going campus-wide Strategic Planning Initiative, uncertain research and clinical revenue environments, and new direct costs for campus budgets including research grants, it seems opportune to host a second workshop for faculty on the financial challenges facing our campus. It will consist of a 45-minute presentation by Roddey Reid, Chair, Committee on Planning and Budget followed by a Q & A session.
