The Campus Budget

The campus budget is UC Merced’s financial road map. It details the campus's expected resources and the plans for how to use them.  


As a planning tool, the budget is an important document that affects everyone. It is a statement of UC Merced’s priorities with respect to its teaching, research and public service mission.
