2.     Budget Update – David and others

§  Enrollment Growth Fund estimate was discussed. In order for the college to receive projected enrollment growth funds, Spring 2009 classes must be filled; persistence and retention important.

§  David reported a carryover balance from last year of $300,000

§  Coverage of 10% reduction requirement:

o    Reduced by VP Morton’s funds

o    Electricity budget – need to reduce by 10% = $167,000

o    $59,000 – security

o    $10,000 – security for dorm. 

o    $22,259 – student assistants – campus wide

§  $258,912 = 20% of proposed cuts (larger because it does not include a reduction from VP Morton).

§  Cutting our marketing contribution to the System could affect any marketing assistance we receive.

§  Possible to increase our tuition revenues through persistence and retention.

§  Summer 2008 earned $135,000 without marketing; 640 students served.  Could consider a value package of housing and courses and market to mainland students.
