We are facing a period of significant budget constraints that will require us to take bold actions to become a stronger academic institution in both the short- and long-term. To provide some context, the University of Missouri System’s share of the state’s current FY17 budget withholds is $37 million, with the potential for $57 million in permanent cuts in the Governor’s proposed FY18 budget and the possibility of future reductions. Complicating these financial challenges, we continue to address declines in enrollment, a continuing trend facing universities around the country.

The process

This website shares the process to implement a long-term plan to address the budget impacts in FY18 and beyond. While these are never easy decisions to make, we firmly believe that it is essential that we all participate by taking a critical look at each of our organizations to meet the goals of this budget process.

Guiding principles

These guiding principles will serve as our compass as we seek to protect activities and programs that best meet the mission of our University and provide maximum benefit to our communities, our state and the nation.


The budget planning process will be completed by early June 2017.
