Second budget redesign forum is Aug. 22

"Facilitating Civil Discourse in Learning Spaces" builds on one of the office's first TipSheets and provides faculty with more in-depth suggestions and ideas about how to teach, model and facilitate civil discourse in classrooms, labs and meetings.
University administrators will host a forum to provide details on the transition to a hybrid responsibility center management budget model. The presentation is 1:30 p.m. Aug. 22 in Hawks Hall.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s ongoing budget redesign process will take centerstage in a second summer forum on Aug. 22.

The university is on path to redesign its funding allocation process and shift to a hybrid responsibility center management budget model. This new model is an incentive-based management philosophy designed to support the achievement of the university’s mission by decentralizing budget authority, transferring it from central administration to individual schools or programs. Learn more about the responsibility center management model.

Open to the entire campus community, the forum is 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Aug. 22 in Howard L. Hawks Hall, Room 002. Chancellor Ronnie Green is scheduled to attend.

The session will feature an overview of the project and progress made to date. It will also feature a panel of peers from select research universities who have experience regarding incentive-based budget models. The forum will be available online via Zoom.

Participants attending via Zoom will have access to a link with real-time captioning. For additional details about accessibility or to request sign language interpreters for this event, contact Jordan Malone at jordanmalone@unl.edu or 402-472-4455, before Aug. 8, to ensure that your accommodation needs are met.

The summer budget forums are being recorded and posted to the Nebraska budget website. To stay engaged in the process and learn more about the redesign, visit the business and finance website.
