1 McGill’s Budget Since Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 in Brief Justin Marleau Vice-President of AGSEM – Teaching Assistants

2 McGill’s Budget is Divided into Four Funds Operating Fund – Fund dealing with day-to-day operations, ‘unrestricted’ -> can be used for anything Restricted Fund – Fund dealing with day-to-day operations, research and other projects -> restricted Plant Fund – Capital assets of the university -> restricted Endowment Fund – The pool of money bequeath to the university in donations and gifts -> some unrestricted, most restricted

3 Let Us Focus on The Operating Fund First Why? – CREPUQ uses it to justify the underfunding of the Quebec University system 1 Will look at – Revenues over time – % of revenues to different activities over time Then look beyond operating revenues when comparing across universities – McGill compared to U of T

4 McGill’s Operational Revenues Have Increased over 30% since FY Note: FY 2011 is only 11 months, hence the ‘drop’ in revenues

5 McGill Has Received An Extra $398.7 Million Since FY 2007 (compared to FY 2007 baseline) Where has that money gone? Only a few possibilities – Academic Salaries – Administrative Salaries – Student Salaries – Student Aid – Benefits – Non-Salary Expenses (including interfund transfers used for capital purchases)

6 43% Has Gone to Administrative and Non-Salary Expenses 3 Should we prioritize differently?

7 Comparing McGill and U of Toronto Is McGill underfunded compared to U of Toronto? To compare, we need to look at funding per full-time equivalent student – McGill in FY : FTEs – U of Toronto FY : FTEs

8 Based on Operating Revenues Alone, There is a Gap, But Not with Total Revenues Operating Revenues – U of Toronto: $1,892.9 million -> $27,800 per FTE – McGill: $709.8 million -> 23,190 per FTE Total Revenues – U of Toronto: $2,403.4 million -> $35,298 per FTE – McGill: $1,141.3 million -> $37,288 per FTE

9 Can’t Just Look at Operating Revenues to Determine Level of Funding Quebec likes to ‘restrict’ funds more than other provinces – They have to be used for specific purposes, which can still be quite broad. Quebec also gave much more research funding and capital grants compared to other provinces – These grants still fund students and education

10 Is McGill Underfunded? There is little evidence of that when you look at total revenues Even in operating revenues, McGill has been doing well in the last five years, though that looks to change with the PQ
