2004-2005 Operating Budget
The Cabinet reviewed in detail the draft 2004-2005 Operating Budget for the University.  Reductions must be made in several areas in order to develop a balanced budget.  All divisions were asked to look specifically at the "staff/food meetings" and "travel" line items to make any possible reductions in these expenses.  Additionally, the Cabinet agreed upon calculation adjustments relating to student enrollment.  The revised proposed budget will be reviewed at the next Cabinet meeting.
