Central Administration

Creativity, legality, and transparency

Central Administration conceives of itself as a service organization. University operations are conducted through Central Administration‘s eight divisions.

Central Administration is led by the Chancellor. Operating as a service unit, it has the mission of supporting the functions defined in the state’s Higher Education Act. For Administration staff, this means finding creative, fitting solutions in all matters touching on research and teaching.
