Accountability, Communication, Execution, Innovation, Ethics
The Shared Services Office (SSO) will transform the service delivery methods and provide increased levels of service across the AHC through the implementation of collaborative structures and methodologies that strive for efficiencies, timeliness and best practices.
SSO will provide an administrative structure that supports the realignment/reorganization of the academic areas under the AHC.
