In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor encouraged all members of the management team to take ownership of the budgeting process within their respective departments. He emphasized the importance of identifying and prioritizing unfunded budget items, allowing for a systematic approach in case of any supplementary funding or lobbying efforts.
The Management Retreat serves as a platform for the university's top executives and decision-makers to collectively address financial challenges and collaboratively chart a sustainable financial path for the institution's future.
As the retreat draws to a close, the university community eagerly anticipates the practical implementation of the insights and strategies developed during these sessions.
