The Division of Administration and Finance has a complicated history, being formed circa 2008, it has antecedents in the earlier
Divisions of Administration and Business Affairs and ultimately the Office of Executive Dean and Business Affairs. The Executive
Dean became head of Administrative Affairs when it was formed in 1960 and was responsible for the Building Program and Publications.
In 1969, Administrative Affairs became Planning and Development and added Campus Patrol to its list of departments in 1975.
In 1984, Planning and Development was subsumed under Administration and Business Affairs.
In 1965, Business Affairs was created and oversaw Accounting, Personnel, Financial Office, and Purchasing. In 1967, Business
Affairs was changed to Business Services and now included the Foundation. In 1981 the name was again changed, this time to
Administrative and Business Affairs. In 1984, it subsumed Planning and Development. More departments were included under Administrative
and Business Affairs over the years including Environmental Health and Occupational Safety and Institutional Research and
Analysis. Around 2008, Administrative and Business Affairs changed its name to the Division of Administration and Finance.
Today the departments under Administration and Finance include: Athletics, Facilities Development and Operations, Finance,
Foundation and Enterprise Operations, Human Resources, Risk Management and Internal Control, Student Health and Counseling
Services, University Parking Services, and University Police Department.
