Resource Planning

Beginning in Fall 2017, the Provost is introducing a revised Resource Planning Process that will more closely tie our institutional priorities and school/unit strategies with our operating and capital resource allocations. It will guide FY2019 resource planning for both the operating and capital budgets of the University. This new process marks a departure from past practices but remains grounded in the pillars of the University’s strategic plan and builds upon the strong foundation of school/unit collaboration with University leadership. 

The revised Resource Planning Process will provide a more complete understanding of our overall University budget, help align resources to Northwestern’s institutional priorities, as well as enable more sophisticated long-range planning. It aims to bring clarity and transparency to the processes underlying the Provost’s investment decisions and deployment of the University’s resources.

Together with the President, Provost, and Executive Vice President, we appreciate your openness to a new approach that we believe will better serve our collective goal to make Northwestern the best possible version of itself.
