Board of Regents Committee Meeting on Finance/Programmatic Budget Review

Dear Members of the University Community:

Today, I along with Darrell Morrison, vice president for Business Affairs/CFO, presented A&M-San Antonio's FY17 Programmatic Budget Review (PBR) at the annual Texas A&M University System's Board of Regents Committee PBR meeting. The presentation included financial and academic data from previous years and proposals for the upcoming year.

Included in the FY17 budget proposal were:

  • Base support for the additional faculty and staff (most are being hired in this FY) to accommodate the incoming freshman and overall enrollment growth; along with student services positions to implement the strategic mission to become a model for student and academic success
  • A proposal for a merit plan and market equity adjustments for faculty and staff
  • Various other operational costs associated with a growing university

These budget items will be voted on at the Texas A&M System Board Regents Meeting scheduled for April 26-28, 2016 and an update will be provided. Thank you for your continued support as we propel A&M-SA forward. 

Warm Regards,

President Cynthia Teniente-Matson

Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson
