Budget Update

Nov. 24, 2008

This is surely the season in which institutions are taking stock of their financial position, and MUSC is no exception. On the positive side, our research funding and philanthropic gifts have been exceptionally strong over the past few years, and these monies have allowed us to move forward in many areas and programs related to specified allocations. However, recent budget cuts in State appropriations for all SC public institutions of higher learning have been significant and will affect the University portion of the MUSC budget. This web site has been developed to keep you informed of new developments.

During the past decade, MUSC has enjoyed a period of unprecedented growth and accomplishment. We are committed to transforming the energy and vitality we have experienced in financially strong years into the creativity, discipline, and resourcefulness needed to thrive even during this leaner time. In recent weeks, individuals from all corners of the University have demonstrated exceptional loyalty and goodwill in amazing acts of generosity to each other and to the institution. This period of great challenge reminds us of a core value that may be easy to forget at other times: We have come together as a University because united, we achieve so much more than we could as a collection of individuals. United, we will continue our mission to heal, to understand, and to discover.

This Budget Site will be updated frequently throughout this period to bring you the latest information and suggestions. We appreciate your interest and commitment to the University.
