Strategic Core Sinclair Values
Governor Kasich (speaking to Dayton leaders Jan 11, 2011) “I visited Sinclair and was blown away. This college is the real deal. Sinclair, and colleges like it, are where we need to focus our efforts - connect people with an education to get jobs.”
Financial Update Sinclair is stable and strong Rainy day fund (short-term help if we need it) Authority to increase special fees Healthy enrollment Restrained spending increases
Financial Update Recent state budget cut State is withholding one payment (a month) $3 million for Sinclair this year Equivalent to the salaries of 50 - 60 jobs, or Everyone taking 15 unpaid furlough days Sinclair will NOT cut jobs or furlough employees to fill this gap. Will use rainy day fund and revenue from extra enrollment to fill the $3 million.
Financial Update News Across Ohio . . . Biggest budget gap in history ($8 - $10 billion) 15% to 20% of the Ohio budget What will happen to our state funding?
Financial Update State funding will probably decline Levy funding will probably decline We will probably be forced to increase our tuition and fees If the state cannot pay as much as they do for students, then students will have to pay more for their education
Tuition in Ohio NOTE: Sinclair’s tuition annualized tuition levels are for Winter 2011
