Review of Queen’s budget model

Review of Queen’s budget model

February 15, 2022


Following the release of Queen’s new Strategy, Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane has initiated a review of Queen’s budget model to ensure that resource allocation is aligned with and advances the university’s new strategic goals. The aim of the review is to assess critically the strengths and weakness of the current model and to identify potential modifications.

A steering committee has been formed to oversee the review, chaired by the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Mark Green. Huron Consulting Group has also been engaged to assist in the review of the budget model. 

Huron Consulting Group is conducting a series of interviews and focus groups with various members of the Queen’s community, including department heads, staff representatives, members of Senate committees, senior administration, and deans.

While the review will consider the input received during the consultation process that formed the basis of the Report on the Conversation and the development of Queen’s Strategy, members of the Queen’s community are also encouraged to provide additional feedback to by Monday, Feb. 28.

The steering committee is expected to complete its work and deliver its recommendations by Spring 2022. An overview of any suggested enhancements to the current model will be communicated broadly to the Queen’s community.
