New Seminar Series Designed to ‘Inform Tech’
The Georgia Tech Staff Council is hosting a new series to help make sense of some of the complicated operations of an institute of higher education.
The first in the Inform Georgia Tech Series will focus on budgets and financing with guest Jim Kirk, executive director of Institute Budget Planning and Administration.
At “Colors of Tech Money,” Kirk will discuss Tech’s budget and revenue sources, how the budget is formed and allocated, and why different funding sources are needed for various expenses. The event takes place Feb. 23 from 11 a.m. to noon in the Clary Theatre, Bill Moore Student Success Center.
The series is planned to be quarterly. Future topics will include campus space planning and higher education legislative issues.
“We believe that faculty, staff, students, and the overall community will be very interested to learn more about these topics, and to have the opportunity to ask questions of key leaders,” said Rick Clark, who served as 2015 chair of the Staff Council.
Employees are also encouraged to submit ideas or suggestions for future sessions. Submit ideas at www.staffcouncil.gatech.edu.
