University Finances

The Office of Financial Planning & Budgeting and Controller's Office work collaboratively to support the financial needs of the Unviersity, including accounting, budgeting and long-term financial planning.  Both offices work with financial managers in campus departments to ensure proper accounting rules are being followed and to manage the annual five-year budget development process which culminates in approval by the Board of Trustees.
