About F & A
Please return completed form to Terry Fulcher
The purpose of the strategic planning project, which began in Spring 2001, was to chart the course for Finance and Administration (F&A) over a five-year period. In order to chart this course, however, it was necessary for Divisional staff from all levels to gain a clear perspective of the forces driving demand for F&A services now and in the future. In turn, this perspective makes it possible to formulate goals, plans, and activities that will bring F&A closer to its mission, and thus enhance its value and contributions to the University.
Take the time to view the entire Strategic Plan and see what is in store for Florida State University in the next five years.

National Campaign to Prevent Falls
During the month of May the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH),
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) and the NORA Construction Sector Council (a national government-labor-management partnership) are teaming together to launch a national campaign for preventing falls, the leading cause of work-related injury and deaths in construction.
FSU’ Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) will partner with Facilities, Housing, Oglesby Union, Panama City and Ringling to participate in this campaign and raise awareness about methods to prevent falls amongst employees involved in maintenance and construction related activities. EH&S will distribute campaign material to departments on a weekly basis. The campaign will emphasize that falls can be prevented and lives can be saved through three simple steps:
- PLAN ahead to get the job done safely
- PROVIDE the right equipment to employees to get the job done safely
- TRAIN everyone to use the equipment safely
