2014-2015 Budget Update

As most of you are aware, the Virginia General Assembly was late adopting a state budget.  The college only became aware of our funding for next fiscal year on June 23, 2014.  As a result of the delay, the college’s internal budget process is similarly delayed.  To carve out more time for our internal college process, 25% of the base operating budgets (same as last year’s allocation) will be loaded this week to allow spending in 2014 -2015 to continue; however, the college’s budget for the 2014 – 2015 budget year will not be finalized until on or around August 1st.  At that time, you will receive information about the pending operating and personnel requests and your new budget for 2014 -2015.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly by email or phone.  Your continued cooperation and patience is appreciated.

Cheryl C. Miller,
Vice President of Finance

Thank You!

Thank you to all of my Virginia Western family for your thoughts, prayers, emails, texts, Facebook posts, and the many other expressions of kindness that you have shared with Wes and I following his accident. I have often said that Virginia Western is a large place but a small family. I have been overwhelmed in a wonderful way with how true this is and in what a supportive family you are. Your thoughts and prayers have made a real difference in helping us to focus on the positive and help Wes move in leaps and bounds toward recovery. For that, we are truly grateful. Thank you!

Elizabeth, Wes and Ashley Wilmer
