Founded in the 1970’s, the Faculty Budget Advisory Committee (FBAC) was established to give faculty a vehicle to learn about the financial condition of the University and issues that impact the Johns Hopkins workplace.
The two primary functions of the Committee are to communicate financial issues back to other faculty and to provide input to senior university administrators in an advisory role. The Committee serves as a conduit of information between the various divisions and the administration on budgetary matters.
The Committee generally meets quarterly, typically one or two weeks after the meeting of the Trustees Committee on Finance.
Committee Size and Composition
The Committee includes 13 faculty members from the divisions listed below. Click here to see the current roster.
Appointment of Members
The Provost appoints the Chair of the Committee to an open-ended term and receives recommendations for faculty member(s) to join the FBAC from the Dean of each division. Faculty members are then appointed to the Committee by the Provost’s Office based on those recommendations and in consultation with the Dean of each division.
Appointment terms are open-ended. Vacancies are filled through the process described above.
