Kalbert Young, University of Hawaiʻi vice president for budget and finance and chief financial officer, shares the University of Hawaiʻi biennium budget request approved by the Board of Regents at its November 17 meeting.

The UH biennium budget submitted to the governor and the legislature requests $28,700,000 in the next fiscal year (FY2018) and $29,600,000 in FY2019 in additional general funds. The University of Hawaiʻi currently receives about $432.9 million in state general funds as part of its over $1.2 billion operating budget.

The budget requests are organized to fund initiatives in a number of themes that will advance the university’s four strategic directions: Hawaiʻi Graduation Initiative, Hawaiʻi Innovation Initiative, 21st Century Facilities and Developing High Performance Mission Driven Systems. The budget proposal can be viewed online (PDF).
