2015/16 Budget: help us invest in our future by sharing your savings or revenue ideas

While the senior leadership team has ideas of where we can find budget savings to help the university’s reinvestments for the 2015/16 budget, we want to know where YOU see our opportunities. You’re the closest to the work and can see opportunities for long-term changes right now.

While we try to encourage this kind of conversation daily, now’s the time to make a special effort to gather your team and to have a frank discussion about where we can find savings or reasonable sources of revenue.

In the coming weeks the BOLT team will come around to the shops and departments to meet with you and your coworkers to gather your thoughts and proposals and share our vision on the direction of the UBC.
