University Revenue Subcommittee Report
There are real pressures on the overall funding of Higher Education. Across the country numerous states have decreased their appropriation to public institutions, which has had a direct effect on overall tuition cost to families and students.
Colleges and universities have initiated reviews of their entire operations. The purpose of this self-analysis is to ascertain what is being done right, as well as, what can be improved to find additional resources to meet the primary mission of the institution. A review of the URI Fiscal Year 2013, 2014 and 2015 budget documents a number of issues that affect the URI community. These issues need to be vetted with the university community because the success of URI is our shared responsibility.
This review process and our recommendations for change will not be successful without cohesive leadership from the senior level administration. A bureaucracy cannot change itself; the culture of the institution is not something that affects us from the outside, it is created and sustained by us on the inside.
