  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. 

    We're excited the film’s director Brian Knappenberger will be our special guest speaker for the Q & A moderated by Movies that Matter series producers Judy Arthur and Perri Chasin after the screening.

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 Staff 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.
