FY12 Draft Budget 3.0

Following its open planning and budget hearings, Colorado State University has released the latest draft of its budget for FY12. This Version 3.0 budget builds on earlier planning discussions and will be further revised over the course of the spring, as the University learns more about next year's state funding levels for higher education. These figures are still being reviewed and are subject to change. President Tony Frank takes a final budget to the Board of Governors of the CSU System for approval in June.

Colorado State University is proud to be a good steward of the public trust, and this report is part of that ongoing commitment to transparency and accountability. We invite you to read it, ask questions, and become more familiar with the business of your state University.
