Finance & Administration exists to support students, faculty and staff. Many of our services are somewhat in the background keeping the University running. Buildings are built and maintained, information technology and telephone services keep us connected, finance and business services work to keep us financially secure, and emergency preparedness helps to keep us safe and ready during disasters.
