Budget Matters

The entire meeting was devoted to discussion of the budget. Dean Nick Altiero said that he did not plan to include any of the details of this discussion in the minutes but would follow up with the group as needed.

  • The FY13 budget (year-end projections and austerity measures)
  • The FY14 budget (possible structural changes and potential challenges)
  • The strategic plan (effect of the economic environment on the scope and pace of the plan)


Assistant Dean Sandy Parker reminded the group that staff evaluations are now officially overdue so anyone who has yet to submit staff evaluations should do so immediately. Evaluations must be done on-line with hard copies to the dean’s office.

Associate Dean Beth Wee reminded the group that the deadline for Tulane 34 award nominations is fast approaching and that both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible. Nominations should be submitted to her.
