Fiscal Responsibility

The WIU strategic plan Higher Values in Higher Education calls for using planning, budgeting, and reporting structures to advance University goals and accountability. In Spring 2010, Academic Affairs units submitted annual reports that highlighted FY2010 accomplishments, identified FY2011 goals, and described FY2011 budget priorities. This annual reporting and budgeting process allows the University to identify its highest priorities so it can better allocate resources to those priorities, which is especially important given the recent economic downturn and uncertainty of the state's budget. Academic Affairs is committed to supporting the University's main priority of continuing to provide quality academic programs that remain affordable for students and families.
