The Ins and Outs of University Finances: A Panel Discussion, March 22

How does The New School pay for, well, The New School? What role does tuition play? How about federal and state money? What are the university’s priorities and how are they reflected in the annual budget?

A panel of The New School’s resident higher education administration experts answers these and many other questions at an open seminar on university finances and operations. The event takes place on Thursday, March 22, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. in the Lang Caf√©.

The seminar begins with a brief presentation on the sources and expenditures of university funds, with attention given to the choices institutions make in creating budgets. Panelists then examine the particular constraints and priorities of The New School’s budget. Ample time for questions has been scheduled after the presentations.

We’re offering the seminar in response to many questions from students and faculty, and in the interest of transparency,, says panelist Neil Grabois, dean of the Milano School. A mathematician by training, Grabois developed expertise in higher education financing during his decade-long tenure as president of Colgate University.

Along with Grabois, the panel includes Frank Barletta, senior vice president of Finance and Business; Craig Becker, vice president and treasurer; John Green, associate dean for administration, New School for Public Engagement; and Steve Stabile, assistant vice president for Budget and Planning.
