University Planning and Budgeting Committee

The University Planning and Budgeting Committee (UPBC), which is chaired by the Provost, advises the Chancellor in the development of University operational and long-range plans and budgets. UPBC work includes: developing planning parameters and planning information; reviewing planning proposals from the Senior Vice Chancellors and Vice Chancellors who report directly to the Chancellor; and drafting proposed University plans and budgets for the Chancellor's consideration. In addition, the UPBC reviews policy matters including: facilities planning; the creation, termination, or merger of schools or major academic divisions; the creation or termination of major administrative units; the University-wide mission and strategic plan; and other matters of University-wide concern. Members of the UPBC include the Senior Vice Chancellors and elected and ex officio representatives of Pittsburgh Campus and regional campus faculty, staff, deans, and students.
