EKU Budget Advisory Committee - November 29, 2017

One of the many benefits of working at a place like Eastern Kentucky University is that we are surrounded by colleagues of great ability and capacity.  Their experience and perspectives provide us the opportunity to make the best possible decisions for the University as we move forward in some very challenging times for higher education generally and for EKU particularly.
In this regard, I have assembled an ad hoc EKU Budget Advisory Committee as we prepare to enter the 2018 legislative session and our financial situation starts to come into clearer focus.  The role of this group will be to make recommendations to the President’s Council for consideration which will then be taken to the EKU Board of Regents for deliberation and action.
We have attempted to get a representation across campus and areas with the membership of this working group.  The members are:

  • David McFaddin (representing the President’s Council)

  • Tanlee Wasson (representing Academic Affairs and Institutional Research)


  • Matt Winslow (representing the Faculty Senate)

  • Sara Zeigler (representing the Deans’ Council)

  • Mary Clements (representing the Chairs Association)

  • Melinda Compton (representing the Provost’s Office)

  • Stephanie King (representing the Staff Council)

  • Mark Maier (representing the Office of Legal Counsel)

  • Barry Poynter (representing Finance and Administration, including Auxiliary Enterprises and Athletics)

  • Brett Morris (representing Student Success)

  • Burke Christensen (representing the EKU faculty at large)

  • Sarah Pitt (representing Human Resources)

The work of this group will begin immediately.  I will keep the campus apprised of its progress with regular communications as the members work toward making recommendations by March 1, 2018.
Thank you for your continued service to EKU and our students.
Yours sincerely,
Mike Benson
