Dates of existence
The Office of Vice-President, Finance and Administration was originally established by the Board of Governors on 21 June 1968, under the title Vice-President, Administration. The general administration of the University was originally a function of the President, who by 1966 had delegated this responsibility to a senior administrator. This administrator oversaw a number of administrative units, including the Bursar, Registrar, General Services, Facility Planning, and the Library. In 1968, the Office of Vice-President, Administration was created, and was responsible for finance, physical plant and planning, purchasing, personnel, ancillary services, and athletics and recreation. Each of these units was headed by a director.
By 1981, responsibility for finance, including the office of Bursar, was moved to a newly created Executive Director of Finance, which by 1985 was renamed Vice-President, Finance and in 1988, Vice-President, Financial Services. Both the Vice-Presidents Administration and Financial Services reported directly to the President. In 1993, the two separate offices were rejoined to form the Office of Vice-President, Finance and Administration.
