Educational Toolbox Series

Lunch and Learn Event

We are excited to announce a new series of workshops that started in September 2023 and will continue through 2024 that have been created by the Executive Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance Central Services Administration Team - Police and Security, Budget and Planning, Financial Services and OGC, OIT, Facilities Management, Institutional Planning and Human Resources - other VC and ASA areas will be added.

These workshops are open to all individuals regardless of role or responsibility level. The primary goal of these sessions is to help people gain the knowledge to support them in their roles, and their goals for their career, and to offer global training and sharing of knowledge. Members of the campus senior leadership team will share their expertise around topics such as:

  • Budgeting – how does the campus budget model work and where does the funding come from
  • How to handle sensitive expenditures and avoid audit pitfalls: including meals, travel, awards, events and more
  • What you need to know when it comes to moves and remodeling – how can the Facilities and Institutional Planning Teams help you every step of the way
  • F&A from Grants and Contracts presented by the Office of Grants and Contracts, Finance and Budget including policies on distribution and how funds are used

Each of these sessions will be held as a hybrid event to accommodate flexible schedules. In-person attendees will be provided lunch. Space is limited, so register early! We look forward to seeing you!
