We received some good news on the budget front. Here's what I know:
- We received an internal loan of $2 million beginning fiscal year 2013 (FY13) for physical upgrades to Keller, Borlaug, and Vincent halls, and the study spaces in Willey and Wilson Library.
- OCM will receive one-time funding ($500K) for high priority maintenance of classrooms and study spaces.
- Our request for $200K to replace the classroom scheduling system was approved.
- Beginning in FY13, costs associated with the Consumer Relationship Management (CRM) license will be assumed by OIT.
These items are critical to furthering our mission, but there is still more work to be done. I will keep you informed as I hear more.
