About the Academy : Academy Funding

Funding of the Academy

The Academy will operate according to a rolling three-year business plan that is updated each year by the Academy Director. This process includes preparation of an annual operating budget that is submitted each year following the financial policies of the Miller School of Medicine. The Academy Director will present the updated business plan and annual budget to the Academy Steering Committee for review and input. However, the budget does not require the approval of the Steering Committee. The funding of the three-year business plan will come from a line item allocation from the Dean’s Office and philanthropy. Our vision is that the good work of the Academy members will lead to further philanthropic support. Working with the UM Development Office, the Academy is open to the possibility of being named for an appropriate donor gift.
