COVID has had an impact on such fundamental things as enrollment; safety of students, faculty, and staff; housing occupancy; dining hall options; recreational and athletic activities; hiring; and more. And all these things have something in common–financial implications. During this Colleague Conversation, we will explore working with the CFO and/or Provost (whoever controls the purse strings) to ensure that Student Affairs is a priority, advocating for divisional budget when money is tight, aligning budget decisions with strategic priorities (at divisional and institutional levels), anticipating budget cuts that may come mid-year or in FY 22, and working with staff when raises or opportunities for advancements may not be possible within budget constraints.
