Resources and Revenue Plan

Last updated on October 10, 2013

Achieving the aspirational visions and initiatives require significant financial investments. While the funding environment has stabilized since the beginning of the planning process, it is crucial for the university to leverage its strengths to generate new and increased sources of revenue to support these Goals and Initiatives. The development of a continuing culture of philanthropy and a commitment to generating a significant percentage of our revenue is crucial to the university’s future success.

Consistent with the resource and revenue plan outlined in the strategic plan, the university has invested $1,427,015 in one-time funding and $817,112 in base budget funds that support the strategic plan’s resource and revenue plan.  These investments include funds that support strategic plan initiatives and address critical support needs.
