Financial stewardship program seeks nominations
The University of Oregon’s Financial Stewardship Institute is currently seeking nominations for participants in its fifth annual program. Nominations for 30 spots are open to all UO faculty and staff who hold positions with budget responsibility. The final day for nominations is Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Throughout the academic year, this intensive leadership program focuses on providing university staff members with “the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills to address the growing complexity of the university’s business environment,” said Jamie Moffitt, CFO and vice president for finance and administration at the UO.
The program consists of 12 workshopsbetween October and April with topics including university accounting, high-stakes conversation and grants administration. It offers participants the occasion to engage in discussions on the best ways to manage university resources, equipping them with the know-how necessary to do so on any level. Activities include working in groups to solve real campus issues through application of acquired skills.
