Mission

We provide the budget and planning tools, processes, and strategies that help University leadership, at all levels, to be effective, prudent, and strategic in its decision-making and resource management.

Values

Adaptive High Performance

  • We quickly reprioritize and readjust to meet the demands of new circumstances
  • We value results over process
  • We continually drive stronger performance through flexibility in time (when), location (where), role (what we do), tool (how), and resource (who does it)
  • We see obstacles as challenges to overcome

Curiosity

  • We seek first to understand before offering assistance or solutions
  • Our questions are rooted in a desire to improve outcomes
  • We value inquiry over ego preservation
  • We embrace opportunities to learn new things

Selflessness

  • We seek what is best for the Office of Budget and Planning and the University, rather than what is best for ourselves
  • We proactively teach, document, and share openly to aid the learning of our teammates
  • We freely admit mistakes, invite feedback, and celebrate the success of our colleagues
  • We are willing to be vulnerable, humble, and empathic in service to the team
