Campus Unit (CU) Finance Leads oversee business processes for campus units, function to keep organizational units in step with campus-wide policies, procedures and financial regulations as mandated by the University and the State of North Carolina, and serve as the primary financial contact for their school/department.

CU Finance Leads have regularly scheduled in-person meetings and also utilize a secured Office 365 Teams site for exchanging ideas and other information.

CU Finance Leads who need access to the Office 365 Teams site, wish to suggest a Bright Line or training suggestion or have questions regarding the information should contact
