Campus Shared Services (CSS) is currently undergoing a restructuring effort to align with a campus initiative to create service regions for improving administration. It is targeted to be completed by the end of 2018. CSS will provide services to specific “groupings/clusters” of academic or administrative units (5 academic, 1 all other). (Check out the current “Roadmap” developed for CSS staff which shows the structure and restructure progress.) This regional approach to providing administrative services will improve service quality by re-establishing personal connections and to develop more local expertise.
The restructuring of CSS staff across areas of research administration, human resources/ academic personnel support, and business & financial services will enable better collaboration amongst the teams to serve faculty and units through these six (6) regional service centers:
FYI – Some services like all CSS IT support services, Benefits, Visas, new employee Onboarding, etc., will continue to be provided to campus as a part of CSS Central Support; not by individual regions.
