Mission and Outcomes
The mission of the University Finance Fundamentals training series is to effect positive change at Indiana University by: Inspiring ownership of financial integrity within the university finance community – from the individual and up through the department , school, campus, and university levels; earning trust and building rapport so that the university finance community may view University Controller’s representatives as partners and consultative resources; and maximizing compliance with federal and state laws and regulations, as well as with the university’s financial policies.
By the end of this series, participants should be able to:
- Determine when expert consultation of the University Controller office or University Budget Office is appropriate – in advance of taking actions that impact the financial system,
- Consult the available resources, including online documentation and subject matter experts, when appropriate,
- Act in the best interest of Indiana University and its stakeholders, and
- Maintain awareness of updates to federal and state laws and regulations, as well as to the university’s financial policies.
