Administration and Finance

The Administration and Finance Division provides a diverse collection of services to the campus community and beyond.  Under our umbrella you will find links to Financial Services, Housing, Green Music Center, Human Resources, Facilities Management, Athletics and much more. 

We are growing and offering even more services; in 2012 we opened, to critical acclaim, Weill Hall at the Green Music Center; in 2013, we opened our new Student Center, which has revitalized and given new life to our residential community, and the entire campus; and in 2014 as the semester got underway, Schroeder Hall, a 250 seat recital hall part of the Green Music Center complex, opened with a weekend of free concerts to the community and rave reviews.  This space is being used for concerts, performances as well as classroom and lecture hall space. These are just some of the areas, buildings and departments our Division supports and is responsible for.

In addition to University specific activities, Administration and Finance provides support to the auxiliary organizations on campus including the Sonoma State University Academic Foundation, the Associated Students Inc. and Sonoma State Enterprises.  

We pride ourselves in constantly striving to improve the level of service we provide to those we serve, including to our students, faculty members, staff and members of the broader community. 

Sonoma State University is becoming an even greater focal point in our community, whether you are a visitor, a prospective student, an employee or a member of our greater community, we want your experience with Sonoma State University to be outstanding.

If you have any questions or suggestions as to how we can make your experience here even better, please do not hesitate to contact myself, one of our Associate Vice Presidents or any member of our Senior Director Staff.  We are here to serve you.
