Dear Oregon State Colleagues,

Early in the year, we wrote to you regarding the FY19 budget rescission and indicated that we would hold forums on the Corvallis and OSU-Cascades campuses to discuss the university’s general financial outlook and OSU’s response to the state’s budget, rising costs, and enrollment trends, as we seek to advance the university’s goals and Strategic Plan 4.0.

The dates of those forums are:

Thursday, April 18, 10 to 11 a.m., Tykeson Hall 111, OSU-Cascades in Bend

Thursday, May 2, 9 to 10 a.m., MU Horizon Room (MU 49) in Corvallis
This forum will be live streamed.

In addition, the Office of Budget and Fiscal Planning continues to hold its series of University Budget Conversations for all OSU employees and students, with the goal of providing information about the university’s budget and budgeting process and answering questions.

The tenth and eleventh in that series for 2018-19 are scheduled for Monday, April 1, 10 to 11 a.m., Memorial Union Horizon Room (MU 49) in Corvallis, and Wednesday, April 11, 12 to 1 p.m., Memorial Union 215, in Corvallis. Both will discuss the current year and longer-term budget outlook.

We encourage you to review our University Budgeting FAQs to learn more about how we undertake budgeting at OSU and the evolving FY20 budget situation, and you might also visit the Office of Budget and Fiscal Planning website, which provides extensive information on the university’s finances and budget planning. We hope you will make time to attend a forum.

Sincerely,

Edward Feser, Provost and Executive Vice President
Mike Green, Vice President for Finance and Administration
