  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Business Office

The Business Office serves the College by providing leadership in fiscal policy, budgeting, financial practices and procedures. It is responsible for the budget, hundreds of unrestricted and restricted accounts, and tens of thousands of transactions annually, including 15,000 paychecks. 

The  staff works with college administrators, faculty and staff to ensure compliance with all Federal, State, and local regulations. Please share any ideas or suggestions you may have to help us improve our ability to serve as a resource to you.

Is it a Policy or a Procedure?
What's in a name? We frequently hear people use the names "policy", and “procedure” to refer to documents.We define them as follows:
Policy:  a document that outlines specific requirements or rules that must be followed. Many College policies are outlined in the Employee Handbook.
Procedure:  collections of system-specific or procedural-specific requirements, e.g, how to process a payment on a student account.
Business Office Forms are located on the Forms directory. Memos are available on our Forms, Memos and Policies page.
