Historical budget information

University Archives holds University budgets in print form from 1911 to 2009. Information in the budgets can be accessed by employee name and by department, school, or college. Contact our office if you have questions or would like to schedule a visit to use the budgets.

University budgets from 1911-1969 are available in the University Budgets collection in the University Digital Conservancy. These budgets provide detail at the department level for salaries of faculty and staff and may include other departmental expenses such as supplies, equipment, facilities, etc. A volume for an individual fiscal year also may include a staff index, department index, fund index, budget code list, budget summary statement, or income summary.
