The Division of Finance and Administration (DFA) comprises 10 distinct units and over 600 employees. Vice President for Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer Mike Green works closely with the president and provost as he provides leadership, oversight, and stewardship for all aspects of the university's administrative functions and services, and an annual budget of over $1.2 billion. DFA leaders collaborate across the university to ensure that OSU’s resources, infrastructure and services are aligned with the university’s teaching, research and engagement mission.

    DFA Mission, Values and Strategic Direction

    The division’s priorities and projects are driven by our Framework for Success and its three main elements—the DFA guiding principles, key performance indicators and division-wide and unit metrics.  Together with the university’s strategic plan, these elements determine the division's strategic direction, priorities and projects, which, in turn, directly advance SP4.0 actions.

    Built on the foundation of OSU’s core values—accountability, diversity, integrity, respect, and social responsibility—the DFA Framework for Success allows for an open and collaborative culture  where everyone can use a common language to contribute their expertise and ideas.

    The primary goal of all DFA units is to support OSU’s mission and the success of students, faculty and staff. That’s why we say the DFA is ensuring success every day!
