  • Support Services Methodology Overview (Sensible, Consistent) Step 1: List of programs populated using PeopleSoft Department Code numbers as of AY/FY 2013-14, excluding those associated with academic departments Step 2: Based on a list of centers and institutes, additional items added to Support Services Programs list based on function Step 4: Vice Presidents & Deans provide input regarding the programs identified for their unit.
