Updated FY13 Stockton Campus Revenue and Expense Assumptions: Perrot reviewed the updated FY13 revenue assumptions with the committee. Adjustments since the previous meeting included an increase in debt service to cover the Stockton-campus floors of the Dugoni Building renovation in San Francisco; a reduction in the allotment to the Operating Reserve, an increase for library materials; and an increase to lower the retirement plan eligibility age from 26 to 21. The members of IPC accepted the enrollment projections as presented in the assumptions and agreed that a FY13 tuition increase should be no more than the increase presented in the assumptions.
Stockton Campus Administrative Budget Presentations: Vice President for Student Life Griego presented the five FY13 budget requests for the Division of Student Life. They included, in order of importance: 1) hiring an additional Public Safety Officer [NOTE: subsequent to the meeting and on understanding that the FY12 allocation for Public Safety is a base add, VP Griego withdrew this request]; 2) making additions to the Wellness Center budget for counseling and dietician services 3) increase the Career Resource Center staffing and budget to provide additional co-curricular internships and leadership experiences; 4) implement a student Social Satisfaction and Spirit Enhancement initiative; and 5) augment the budget for the Multicultural Center to provide expanded student coverage to keep the Center open on weekends and provide additional programming.
Vice President Chris Johnston presented the FY13 budget requests for the Division of University Development. They included, in order of importance: 1) adding an Executive Director for Development to the development staff of the Brubeck Center's current campaign; 2) hiring an Executive Director for Campaign Planning and Implementation for the upcoming university comprehensive campaign; and 3) budget enhancement to support document imaging and University special events. Pearson reminded presenters to send their budget requests and presentation materials to Perrot no later than the Thursday prior to their presentations.
