Shared Responsibility Budget Model

OSU’s process for the allocation of the Corvallis-campus Education and General budget has developed over many years through the addition of new kinds of revenues, incentives, and distribution models. There is consensus that the budget process should change.

The goals of the shared responsibility budget process are to:
  • Align the budget allocation process to support and advance the three goals of the University’s strategic plan
  • Recognize the diverse academic missions of OSU’s colleges and centers
  • Promote interdisciplinary and collaborative teaching, research, and outreach, and further OSU’s culture of collaboration and cooperation
  • Make sure the University is financially sound and can make the long-term investments required for success
