State of Mines Budget

Due to the high level of uncertainty regarding the final state budget and funding for higher education, this site was developed to provide an open look at the school’s developing plans to adapt to current and future financial challenges. This site provides Mines faculty, staff and students with the latest and most accurate information on the state budget and how it impacts the school.
