'Town hall meeting' planned on financial outlook
Posted February 23, 2009; 05:41 p.m.
A "town hall meeting," scheduled to provide a financial overview of the University and a look at how present economic conditions will affect the next fiscal year and beyond, is set for 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, in McCosh 10.
The session is open to all members of the University community.
Presentations will be made by Provost Christopher Eisgruber, Executive Vice President Mark Burstein, Vice President for Finance and Treasurer Carolyn Ainslie and Vice President for Human Resources Lianne Sullivan-Crowley. There also will be a question-and-answer period.
In a letter to the University community in January, President Shirley M. Tilghman detailed projections for how the economic turbulence will affect the University's operating budget, faculty and staff recruitment and compensation, and capital planning. Since then, administrators have scheduled meetings to provide additional information and to answer questions for a number of groups on campus, including the faculty, the department chairs, the Academic and Administrative Managers Group and the Council of the Princeton University Community.
Those who cannot attend the March 4 meeting are invited to visit a website that describes the cost-savings initiatives. Those with cost-saving ideas to share may send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
