Redesigning a Budget Model with a Grassroots Approach

Journal Cover
From Volume 45 Number 3 | April–June 2017
By Maria R. Anguiano, Jason Rodriguez
Challenges: Engaging Stakeholders
Planning Types: Resource Planning

A budget model shapes the way a campus operates in a fundamental way. Redesigning a campus budget model could actually happen relatively quickly from a technical standpoint. However, extensive engagement, collaboration, and conversation are key to a successful implementation. In this article, the authors chart the budget model redesign process at UC Riverside, which followed a uniquely grassroots approach. Changing the budget model at UC Riverside was about changing mind-sets, incentives, and behaviors—not just about the numbers. UC Riverside’s phased approach to its redesign process may be instructive to other higher education institutions considering undertaking such a major change initiative.
