Business Administrator's Forum

Business administrators are the backbone of our administrative infrastructure. It is through utilization of this backbone that goods, services and people are located, acquired and applied to Vanderbilt's mission activities of research, health care, teaching and learning, and community service.

The Business Administrators' Forum has been created to:

  1. provide information to business administrators relevant to this vital role, and
  2. gather information from business administrators to critique the program and offer opinions on future programs.

Who Should Participate

The term "business administrator" is a generic term and represents those individuals (300-400 across the institution) that have direct responsibility for "managing the business" of a department or area - including but not limited to financial and human resource matters. Individuals invited to this Forum hold a variety of job titles.

Key business leaders from across the institution assist in keeping Forum participant lists up to date by confirming the mailing list prior to each meeting. If you believe you should attend this meeting, e-mail us with your contact information and we will add your name to the list prior to this review.

No longer a business administrator? E-mail us the name of your successor and we'll update our records.

Meeting Schedule

Meetings are generally scheduled in the fall and spring of each year. If needed, additional meetings may be scheduled.

Meeting participants are invited to attend meetings (via e-mail) between 4 to 6 weeks before a scheduled meeting.
