The mission of Finance, Administration, and Support (FAS) is to provide financial, administrative, human resources, auxiliary services, facilities operations and maintenance, construction, medical, museum programs, counseling, governmental relations, police, strategic planning, and facilities master planning support to the Institute.
FAS is a group of diverse departments and offices. It includes a large number of highly competent and dedicated people committed to supporting VMI’s State mandate “to provide higher education in a military organization”.
FAS helps to ensure that VMI’s academic, military and athletic programs are coordinated, integrated, and synchronized.
FAS maintains a focus on VMI’s Mission and on its Vision for the future. To that end, FAS ensures that VMI’s fiscal resources and physical environment meet or exceed all standards and requirements.
FAS work products include the VMI Annual Operating Budget, Strategic Plan, and Post Facilities Master Plan.
The safety and security of our cadets, their families, our employees, and the visitors to the Post are paramount. The VMI Police and Security Officers are supported by multiple committees and teams made up of faculty and staff from across the Institute.
All FAS departments and offices are committed to assessing their operations and initiating best practices in their respective areas.
