DESCRIPTION AND WORKLOAD

The function of the Budget and University Priorities Committee (B&P; Peter-Paul Committee) is to make recommendations on spending against budget projections and upcoming budget plans to the deans of the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering; review and make budgetary recommendations on proposals for new programs, reductions in existing programs, or major changes in spending priorities; monitor the relationship between the budgets of the associated schools and the university; represent the faculty of the associated schools in discussions of faculty salaries and benefits; and keep faculty members and students informed of its work, conclusions, and recommendations. The committee has the authority to receive information on spending against budget projections and upcoming budget plans and consult with officials of the associate schools and the university on matters having budgetary impact.

This is an elected committee and consists of eight faculty members, with two faculty members from each of the following department groupings: engineering, arts and humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The committee also consists of three undergraduate students to be designated by the TCU Senate, one graduate student to be designated by the Graduate Student Council, and the following ex officio members without vote: the dean School of Arts and Sciences, the executive administrative dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, the dean of the School of Engineering, the executive associate dean of the School of Engineering, and a representative from the AS&E Executive Committee. Members are elected to a five-year term. Full-time voting-eligible faculty members are able to serve on this committee, but no more than one person from a single department may be a member of this committee at any one time.

Committee members attend six to eight meetings per semester. The committee chair is expected to arrange fall meetings with administrators during the preceding summer to ensure availability. The committee issues an interim report with findings and recommendations at the end of the fall term. This committee is appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
