Budget Forum

What is the Budget Forum?

The Budget Forum allows current Western faculty, staff, and students to comment on operating budget proposals. Comments from the campus community are shared with the President's Cabinet as part of the proposal review process

The final budget recommendation will be open for a second comment period before being presented to the Board of Trustees.  The comment period typically opens in late winter and closes in spring, but varies based on the legislative session in Olympia, dates of Board of Trustees meetings, and other internal operations. 

Questions about the budget process can be sent to SMB@wwu.edu
