The Auxiliaries & Activities Business Center (AABC) was created to help better serve the financial, accounting, human resources, and administrative needs of Oregon State University’s auxiliary and student fee-based units.  Those units are as follows (click department name for website):

Associated Students of OSU (ASOSU) Public Safety

Counseling & Psychological Services Specialized Administrative Services
Diversity & Cultural Engagement Student Access & Family Resources

Facilities Services Student Incidental Fees Committee

AABC combines the administrative functions previously performed directly in these units with certain functions formerly performed by centralized OSU administrative offices (Accounts Payable, Human Resources and Payroll). The goal of AABC is to provide these business units and student organizations with an enhanced level of service and greater expertise in core administrative services.

On a daily basis, AABC employees work to uphold the five core values of AABC:

  • Providing quality customer service
  • Striving for operational excellence
  • Being employee focused
  • Championing ideas & innovation, and
  • Thinking and acting in a strategic and visionary manner
