Achieving an academically responsive and fiscally responsible budget through collaboration, innovation and transparency is vital to NIU’s continued success. In this spirit, President Freeman has formed a new President’s Budget Roundtable, comprised of faculty, staff and students representing a cross section of the university. This advisory group will provide insight and counsel to inform presidential decisions and recommendations, and will be convened regularly to provide diverse perspectives, facilitate information sharing and promote a constructive dialogue on both the budget and budgeting process.
The President’s Budget Roundtable is chaired by Executive Vice President and Provost Beth Ingram, and Vice President for Administration and Finance, Chief Financial Officer Sarah Chinniah.
