Each year, the University of Oregon allocates a very small portion of the Education and General (E&G) Fund budget for strategic investment. Deans and Vice Presidents across the university are invited to submit investment proposals. The provost appoints a Budget Advisory Group (BAG) made up of faculty, students, and staff, including many members of the Senate Budget Committee, to provide advice and counsel on recommended investments.
Provide advice and counsel to the provost regarding strategic investments for the upcoming fiscal year.
1. Call for proposals is sent to all UO deans and vice presidents.
2. The deans and vice presidents manage their own process for selecting proposals for submission.
3. Provost appoints BAG members.
4. Proposals are submitted to the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration and are reviewed by the BAG.
5. Recommendations from the BAG are submitted to the provost, who consults with senior leadership and the president regarding funding decisions.
6. Funding is announced in late May for the following academic year.
The BAG met throughout the month of April to review proposals and prepare recommendations to the provost.
Proposals may request one-time-only dollars for the following academic year or recurring funds.
To see the projects that received strategic funding, see the announcement on Around the O.
For a full listing of the positions and initiatives that received funding last year, see the announcement on Around the O.
The BAG has 21 members, which include faculty, students, and staff from across the university, including many members of the Senate Budget Committee.
