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” 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 individual regions.
