Charge: The Budget Committee serves in an advisory capacity to College Council in all aspects of budget development and management to protect the financial well-being of the college and to operate successfully within our budget. The Budget Committee makes data-driven recommendations that align resource allocations with resource planning, utilizing the college mission, institutional planning documents, and program review recommendations.

The Budget Committee serves in all three areas of the College Council's primary functions including: planning, issue management, and communication. Specifically, the Budget Committee develops annual budget assumptions, recommends reserve and contingency funds, identifies discretionary monies, and reviews and develops strategies for funding campus priorities. The Budget Committee reviews and makes recommendations for resolution of emerging budget issues and creates processes for better budget development and management. Throughout the year, the Budget Committee articulates and clarifies the budget development and management process for the campus community, including training, promoting budget awareness, and maintaining the transparency of budget decisions.

Membership: The Budget Committee membership totals eight, including the Vice President of Administrative Services (Chair) representing management, and seven appointed members representing Management (1), Faculty (3), Classified Staff (2), and Associated Student Government (1). One non-management member will be elected co-chair annual.
