Two forums on university budget set for Jan. 20

PULLMAN — WSU faculty, staff and students will have a chance to learn about the progress of the University Budget Committee and to share their ideas and ask questions during two public forums, noon-1 p.m., and 5:15-6:15 p.m.,Tuesday, Jan. 20, in the CUB Auditorium.
 
Anyone wishing to submit a question in advance may do so at http://www.budget-committee.wsu.edu.
 
President Elson S. Floyd and Provost Warwick M. Bayly, co-chairs of the University Budget Committee, will lead the forum discussion.
 
The budget committee is examining all of the university’s operations and helping identify potential actions to take in response to reductions in state funding for the university.
 
To date, the committee has received more than 400 suggestions on how to cut costs, operate more efficiently, increase revenue, and more effectively fulfill the university’s mission.
 
The forums will be available live via videostream at http://www.experience.wsu.edu  and on Cable Channel 8 in the Pullman area.

* WSU Spokane:  Spokane Academic Center, Room 20, noon-1:00 p.m., and Room 501, 5:15-6:15 p.m.
