Agency History /
The Treasurer of the College was one of the original officers of administration and was responsible for financial transactions and record keeping functions on a daily and yearly basis. As financial and accounting issues became more complex in the twentieth century, the Treasurer's Office expanded in scope and included the Bursar's Office, Accounting Office, and the Controller's Office. In 1991, the position became part of the larger office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration and Treasurer.
