Nominations are open for this year’s Financial Stewardship Institute, an engaging professional development program comprised of a series of workshops that focus on the why and what is done when it comes to stewarding the finances of the University of Oregon.
The annual program is available to faculty members and staff to enhance skills in strategic thinking, proactive risk management, and decision-making around budget and finance issues. Campus subject matter experts in financial stewardship will lead the sessions.
The workshops feature topics such as budget planning, contracting, sponsored projects administration, and financial reporting and analysis. More information about the program is available on the Financial Stewardship Institute webpage.
Registration for the program is facilitated through a nomination process to provide representation from many departments across campus with different levels of experience and to ensure participants meet the program requirements. All faculty and staff are eligible for nomination. Participants can nominate themselves or be suggested by others.
To complete the process, nominees and their supervisors must complete the online financial stewardship nomination form, which is available on the Office of Human Resources website. Nominations are due Sept. 16. Nominees will be notified of their status one week prior to the launch of the institute.
Sessions are offered at no cost to participants, who are expected to attend and engage in all eight sessions and participate in a small-group consulting project.
