FSA/Campus Dining Budget Fiscal Year 2015

Each year, the budget for the campus dining program is reviewed by the FSA Board of Directors which includes student representation. Various student committees make recommendations to the campus dining contractor and FSA on the overall program that includes food variety, customer service, concepts, staffing and more. These recommendations are highly considered by FSA, the contractor and the University in order to improve the program. The budget represents all costs associated with providing a comprehensive campus dining program to meet the varied needs of over 6,000 resident meal plan students and the entire campus community.
