In addition to these core duties, the unit provides financial analysis on a wide range of subject matters including total student charges, research performance, and enrollment trends.   Staff members sit on several decision making bodies including the Financial Strategy Group, the Capital Planning Committee, and the Data Stewardship Committee.
