The larger colleges at the University of South Florida (USF) are designated as Responsibility
Centers and have been delegated the authority to function like autonomous entities.
The College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) is strategically committed to interdisciplinary
initiatives that span the organizational boundaries of our academic departments and
even colleges. While the College remains bound by the established policies and business
procedures of the University, CAS has established an organizational structure and
adopted business practices that make it unique to other colleges. This section clarifies
the CAS organizational structure, roles, and responsibilities used for managing the
financial resources of the College.
