Finance and Administration
Eleventh Annual “New to F&A Day”
Monday, May 23, 2016
All staff members who have joined the Finance and Administration workforce since July 1, 2014 will be invited to attend the eleventh annual “New to F&A Day” to be held on Monday, May 23, 2016. The day’s activities will provide information on the breadth and scope of Finance and Administration (which includes more than 1,700 employees in seven divisions); enlighten employees on opportunities for interaction in the local community; and create a means for networking within Finance and Administration, to include meeting the leaders of the various divisions.
The concept of “New to F&A Day” was developed by the division-wide Finance and Administration Diversity Committee, and is implemented with the help of staff from the Office of Human Resources and the Office of the Vice President.
The day included the following:
- Breakfast with Community Leaders
- Walking Tour of Downtown and North Campus
- Presentation by the Vice President For Finance and Administration
- Lunch with Finance & Administration Senior Staff
- Tour of Selected Facilities (Sanford Stadium and the Performing Arts Center)
- Ice Cream Social
