FY2021 Committee - Review the University of Kansas’ Financial Exigency policy found in USRR, Art VII.  (See Governance Office for information.)  It was last reviewed by AP&P in FY16 and they did not suggest any changes at that time.  USRR 7.5.1 states that “Every five years after the official acceptance of this document by the Chancellor, it shall be reviewed by the University administration and by AP&P. Either group may then suggest revisions to the document.”   Any changes to the policy would ultimately go to the University Senate for a vote.
