Business Services Department to offer cost center manager training

Business Services will off a session intended to assist cost center managers, their assistants, and others who work closely with cost center managers, to better understand some of the activities and processes in Business Services, relevant policies and procedures, and who to contact for common questions.  

The session will not be Colleague training, but rather an overview of how our policies and procedures are carried out in practice everyday.

The first segment covers financial and administrative processes such as budgets, travel, general ledger reports, and project accounting. The second segment will cover areas that impact students.

Even if you don't have specific student service responsibilities, the second segment will help you respond to common questions asked by our students such as "Where do I go to pay my fees?"

If you have new responsibilities as a cost center manager, or would like a refresher course, attend this session on Friday, December 15, in Nestor Hall Seminar Room A from 8:30 -11:30 a.m.  

To sign up, or for more information, please contact Beth Bates at or call ext.2640.
