Bob Warren, vice president for Administration and Finance, echoed President Michael Engh’s optimism for Santa Clara University’s future.
Warren announced at the annual University Budget Council’s Budget Forum on Feb. 24 that his reason for optimism was due to signs of the economy recovering.
“I’m not going to make any economic forecasts, but I can say that we’ve turned things around in the last two years, and we’re in a good position right now.”
The Budget Forum is an annual meeting designed to inform the campus community about the upcoming fiscal-year budget and share changes or new planning assumptions.
Warren also announced increases in tuition, fees, and costs for room and board starting in the 2012 fiscal year. Undergraduates will see a 3.9 percent increase, while MBA and engineering graduate students will see a 4.8 percent increase. Law students are facing a 6.2 percent increase, and students in the graduate programs for education, counseling psychology, and pastoral ministries will see a 2 percent increase.
The PowerPoint slides from the presentation are available on the University Finance Office’s website
