History of the Position

Marc Fournier served in this role from 2014-2019. He resigned from George Mason to accept the position of Vice President for Auxiliary Services at Georgetown University.

Likely Opportunities, Priorities, and Challenges of the Position

The new Vice President for Finance and Administration, Carol Kissal, envisions an expanded role for the Associate Vice President (AVP) that includes serving as an internal consultant in strategic projects across the university. The AVP will participate in a consulting-style project team that conducts studies of process efficiency to improve college operations and cost-effective resource utilization of administrative support services.

A focus on serving students is central to auxiliary services at Mason. Staff in the department and leadership of the contract partners emphasized that they regularly resolve issues by asking “what is best for the students?” The division serves a wide-range of campus customers but they understand that providing outstanding service to students needs to be their primary focus.

The AVP will need to consistently assess the university’s existing contractual partnerships and assess potential opportunities to generate new revenue for the institution. Many of the contractual partners have built long-term relationships with Mason and appear to be closely aligned with the university’s values. Contracts are constantly in transition so ongoing, consistent evaluation of the relationships and of the future needs of the institution are critical. The following is the status of current contractual agreements:

Vendor Name Description Expiration Date Remaining Renewals after Expiration Notes
Sodexo Dining services management 6/30/2019 3 one-year renewals Contract updated annually; expires June 2023
Canteen Snack vending 6/30/2019 1 five-year renewal Renewed fall 2018, July 2019 – June 2024
Coca-Cola Drink vending 6/30/2020 None RFP on street, contract to be awarded September 2019
Learfield IMG Licensing Trademark services 3/17/2021 None IMG and Learfield in late 2018
Canon Solutions America Print and mail service management 7/1/2021 5 one-year renewals Renewals expire June 2026
Monumental Sports EagleBank Arena management 9/30/2023 None Renewed fall 2018
Barnes & Noble Bookstore / Patriot Tech management 6/30/2024 None Added Patriot Tech to contract FY18

While it will be important for candidates to have experience with the management of large auxiliary enterprises, the candidate’s combined skills in relationship building, political savvy and intuition will play a critical role in his/her success at Mason. The successful candidate will have the ability to sift through significant amounts of information and focus on the critical issues.

As a distributed campus, Mason has auxiliary operations at three primary locations. The needs of the stakeholders on the distributed campuses vary significantly from the Fairfax campus. Services must be flexible and customized for the different locations. Enrollment is projected to grow by 7,000, including 1,700 online students, by 2024, creating additional opportunities for Auxiliary Enterprises.

Measures of Success for the Position

At an appropriate interval after joining George Mason University, the following items will initially define success for the new Associate Vice President, Business Services:

  • The AVP has established strong working relationships and partnerships with the Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration, Division colleagues, senior management staff, and student leaders.
  • An unwavering commitment to excellence and high quality of service, product, program, and delivery is evident in all areas of oversight.
  • A culture of shared responsibility and accountability among all Auxiliary Enterprises staffing groups is supported.
  • Positive collaborations between Auxiliary Enterprises and other key partners including Facilities, Information Technology Services, Fiscal Services, Budget Office, Academic Affairs, and University Life are evident.
  • The new AVP will have a high profile at George Mason and must engage in dialogue and public relations with a broad group of constituents to build awareness and support for the ongoing work of Auxiliary Enterprises and its role in enhancing the student experience.

Institution & Location

Institutional Background

As Virginia’s largest public university, George Mason University is setting the gold standard for the modern public university. Its dynamic culture and innovative academic programs prepare Mason’s hard-working students for 21st Century careers. Its commitment to teaching excellence combines with cutting-edge research that enriches the academic experience and is changing the world. George Mason is affordable, yet offers high value. Ideally located in the National Capital region, the university provides students with opportunities to enjoy terrific cultural experiences and access to the most sought-after internships and employers in the country.

George Mason, for whom the university is named, was one of the greatest of the founding fathers of the United States. Mason drafted the Virginia Declaration of Rights, which became a model for the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights. Perhaps the most well-known landmark on the Fairfax Campus, the George Mason Bronze is located between the Johnson Center and the Performing Arts Building. Created by internationally known artist Wendy M. Ross, it is the first three-dimensional portrait of George Mason in the United States. The statue is a constant reminder of the ideals most important to both the man and the university: freedom and learning.

The university is known for its strong undergraduate and graduate degree programs in engineering and information technology, dance, organizational psychology, and health care. Mason students are routinely recognized with national and international scholarships. Enrollment is more than 37,000, with students studying in 177 degree programs at the undergraduate, master’s, doctoral, and professional levels. Mason professors conduct groundbreaking research in areas such as cancer, climate change, information technology, and the biosciences, and Mason’s Center for the Arts brings world-renowned artists, musicians, and actors to its stage.

Mason is a distributed university with campuses in Fairfax, Arlington, and Prince William counties. In addition to these three campuses, George Mason operates a campus in Songdo, South Korea, a site in Loudoun County, and has partnered with the Smithsonian Institute to offer a Global Conservation Studies Program at the Conservation and Research Center in Front Royal. The university also offers programs online and at the Center for Innovative Technology in Herndon. Each location has a distinctive academic focus that plays a critical role in the economy of its region.

Fairfax, Virginia

Less than 20 miles outside our nation’s capital, the city of Fairfax has played an important role throughout the history of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation. The city’s size of 6.3 square miles and 23,000 residents gives the Fairfax community the feel of a small town, while providing all the amenities of living in a large metropolitan area.

The city enjoys a vibrant and historical downtown, strong business and residential communities, and an exciting variety of arts, cultural, and recreational opportunities unparalleled in the Washington, D.C. area. George Mason University is an integral member of the Fairfax community.

Over the past several years, Fairfax has been recognized for three significant achievements in local government:

  • Forbes magazine ranked the city of Fairfax one of the top three best places to live in the United States for a community of its size.
  • Achieved AAA bond status—the highest credit rating attainable, citing the city’s budget management, strong reserves, and conservative fiscal management.
  • The National Recreation and Parks Association awarded the city of Fairfax a gold medal at its National Congress. Only four jurisdictions have won this award in Virginia since its inception in 1965.

The city of Fairfax has also experienced tremendous progress over the past decade. It has invested in a new community center, new public library, a renovated and expanded city hall, new police station, four public schools, and purchased an additional 56 acres of open space. All of these, combined with an unprecedented private sector interest in the historic downtown and the redevelopment of Fairfax Boulevard, make this one of the most exciting times in the city’s history.
