Budget Model Redesign

There is a saying that if you want to know what an administrator cares about, do not listen to what they say are priorities; instead, look at their budget and where they allocate resources. The new budget model for the Lawrence campus is being developed as part of a larger effort to build a more stable and fiscally healthy University of Kansas, where our priorities and our budgetary decisions tell the same story.

Since April 2018, our leadership team, in close collaboration with the KU community, has been working to redesign KU’s budget model for revenue allocation. Evaluating the success of our new budget model requires that its structure and its results are clear and easy to understand. These webpages will continue to expand and evolve as the new budget model takes shape.


Interim Provost Lejuez hosted a campus-wide presentation of the new budget model on Wednesday, May 1, in The Commons of Spooner Hall. A captioned version will be available soon.

Presentation slides are available to download.
