University Budget Resource Center

American University’s budget process provides a direct link between resource allocations and the university’s strategic plan, American University and the Next Decade: Leadership for a Changing World. The two-year budget process also enables the university to address multi-year financial implications and achieve operating efficiency.

A diligent effort is made to ensure the university’s budget, and the formulation process that results in its development, is transparent and provides opportunities for participation and input by the university community. The purpose of this resource center is to support that effort. Information provided here includes milestones for the current budget cycle, budget development guidelines, and special reports on each two-year budget from AU’s president to the university community.
