The role of the administrative professional has evolved greatly in recent years.
Administrative professionals have a wide range of responsibilities that go beyond answering the phone and handling clerical details of the office. Many administrative professionals manage projects, and coordinate the daily operations of their department. Developing administrative professionals who demonstrate competency in these areas, supports the University’s mission to:
Be a destination university by fostering lifelong learning among all constituents.
Be inquiry-driven by providing supervisors opportunities to explore their leadership capabilities.
Be distinctive for its ethical commitment by setting standards others follow.
Work for positive transformation by fostering openness and diversity of thought, experience and culture.
