The university's allocation for 2014-15 is consistent with the university's request to the province and its projections in its multi-year budget framework.
"This budget is welcome news, but our work towards building a financially sustainable university remains," Busch-Vishniac said. "We are committed to using our resources carefully and strategically, and this budget allows us to continue with the important work of transforming the university into a strong, U15 university."
The university will be analyzing the impact of the provincial funding over the coming weeks and will announce its 2014-15 budget in early June after it is approved by the U of S Board of Governors.
