Academic Department Engagement Funds

Distribution of Funds

Funds for the academic year are projected and budgeted based on anticipated enrollment and allocated to departments based on Fall term census enrollment. The following distribution model is used:

The following distribution model is used:

  1. Fifty percent (50%) of the total allocation is distributed equally among all departments.
  2. Thirty five percent (35%) of the total allocation is distributed based on the number of majors enrolled in Fall term within any given department. Thus, departments with more majors will receive a larger allocation of this part (35% of the amount available) than departments with fewer majors. The amount allocated to each department is calculated as the proportion of majors served by the department relative to the total number of students served by all departments.
  3. Fifteen percent (15%) of the total allocation is distributed based on the Fall term FTES taught by any given department. Thus, departments with heavier FTES loads will receive a larger allocation of this part (15% of the amount available) than departments with smaller FTES obligations. The amount allocated to each department is calculated as the proportion of FTES taught by the department relative to the total FTES taught by all departments.
