Committee Charge:  Using a holistic approach, the Budget and Long-range Planning Committee serves as the deliberative body of the faculty on budget and resource use for annual and long-range planning issues.  It participates in and provides recommendations for the construction of Academic Affairs' budget requests and represents the Faculty through active participation in university budgeting.  The committee, in its long-range planning capacity, actively participates in the University's strategic planning process including university accreditation, and reviews proposals submitted for the University Academic Master Plan.  BLP shall coordinate with academic units on the development of proposals and apply a holistic approach to make recommendations on resources (for example, library, laboratory, and information technology) for academic programs.  In pursuit of these duties, the committee may create ad hoc subcommittees.
