Penn State’s Finance & Business organization is 2,800 full-time employees strong. The experience, talent, and work ethic that each employee possesses powers F&B through its daily operations across the commonwealth. Each employee helps to make F&B stronger, and a stronger F&B builds a better foundation for the student-centered university that Penn State aims to be.
At the core of the new strategic plan, the framework includes F&B's mission, vision and values. Finance & Business is a service organization that supports Penn State students, faculty, staff, and the public. We are responsible for the planning, management, and stewardship of the University’s human, financial, physical, and environmental resources.
Our guiding principles are operational ideals that move us closer to achieving our vision. We look to employ these principles in every process, interaction, and task as a means of maintaining quality and attaining excellence.
The five-year strategic plan focuses on updating and modernizing business processes, advancing workforce diversity, streamlining and optimizing services, transforming information technology services, and revitalizing Finance & Business’s workforce.
