Board of Visitors Approves $1.97 Billion Budget

THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA’s 2006-2007 budget will grow by 6.7 percent to total $1.97 billion effective July 1, as approved by the Board of Visitors Finance Committee on May 16. Despite the General Assembly’s failure so far to pass a state budget, “I’m confident that the budget I’m bringing to you is sustainable regardless of what happens at the General Assembly,” said Leonard W. Sandridge (left), executive vice president and chief operating officer. The board also heard plans for a new diversity communications strategy that includes two new programs, as well as an update on the progress of the Capital Campaign thus far. Full story.
