Our Teams

​​​Academic and Business Operations

All CAS departments, and many of our centers and programs, have staff members embedded within the unit. These personnel are the front-line staff who help faculty and students meet their business and academic needs and keep the unit operating smoothly. You can use the staff directory at the top of this page to identify all staff who support your unit.

Business administration

Your business administrator (BA) is the professional partner to the chair or director on all day-to-day operational matters. They manage the unit’s operational business and ​serve as the administrative hub facilitating connections and communication between all functional areas of the CAS Operations teams.

Your BA should be your first point of contact for any “how do I …." questions you may have as you pursue your work goals at UD. They are your resident experts on policies and procedures related to all business matters: purchasing, grants, hiring, and so on. If you're not sure where to go or what to do, ask your BA and they'll gladly assist you.

The BAs report to a senior business administrator (SBA) who provides the training and support they need to do their job effectively and helps department leadership resolve operational staffing issues as they arise.

Academic program coordination

Each CAS department will have at least one academic coordinator (AC) and may have multiple ACs specializing in undergraduate or graduate program administration, depending on the size and complexity of the unit. These individuals work closely with department and faculty leadership and BAs to manage operational aspects of the undergraduate and graduate programs to ensure student progress toward degree completion. This includes scheduling courses, submitting curricular changes, resolving registration issues, assigning advisors and planning student recruitment activities & other events, among a host of other tasks needed for a successful academic program. ​​​

Please feel free to reach out to Kaylee Olney​, senior business administrator, with questions or concerns.
