Reserve Analysis

Reserve Analysis is an analysis of existing resources to provide transparency into campus’ reserve balances and allow us to better frame how we can enable their use for investment in our highest priorities. 

Because it is such a valuable exercise, the Financial Planning & Analysis team, in partnership with the Divisional Finance Leaders, will continue to gather, review, and report on reserve balances on an annual basis.
