Response to College Senate Recommendations: Athletic, Health Fee Resolution Amendments

From the Officer-in-Charge
At its April 12, 2013, meeting, the College Senate approved and forwarded to the president a motion to amend the language in the Athletic Fee resolution:

WHEREAS, the Student Athletic Fee at Buffalo State is used to support athletic personnel at a disproportionately higher rate than at other SUNY comprehensive colleges; and

WHEREAS, salaries paid from IFR accounts are subject to both fringe benefit and contractual salary increases,

WHEREAS, the Student Health Fee at Buffalo State is mainly used to support full-time personnel in the Health and Counseling centers; and

WHEREAS, salaries paid from IFR accounts are subject to both fringe benefit and contractual salary increases;

This plan will be presented to the College Senate on or before the December 2013 College Senate meeting.

I accept the recommendations of the College Senate. I charge the vice presidents for finance and management and student affairs with incorporating these recommendations into the all-funds budgeting research currently under way and further charge them with working in close consultation with the entities mandated by SUNY for fiscal o
