Finance & Administration Thirteenth Annual “New to F&A Day”
Tuesday, November 20, 2018


All staff members who have joined the Finance & Administration workforce since July 1, 2016 are invited to attend the thirteenth annual “New to F&A Day” on Tuesday, November 20, 2018. The day’s activities provide information on the breadth and scope of Finance & Administration (which includes more than 1,700 employees in seven divisions); enlighten staff members on opportunities for interaction in the local community; and create a means for networking within Finance & 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 & Administration Diversity Committee, and is implemented with the help of staff from the Office of Human Resources, the Finance & Administration Staff Representative Group and the Office of the Vice President.

The day includes the following:

  • Breakfast with Community Leaders
  • Presentation by the Vice President For Finance & Administration
  • Lunch with Finance & Administration Senior Staff
  • Tour of Selected Facilities (Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) and the Butts-Mehre Athletic Heritage Hall)
  • Reception at the Special Collections Library
