Administration & Finance

Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Administration and Finance Office handles most non-academic functions of the Conviser Law Center campus, from reserving a room to programming access on ID cards to helping employees onboard and offboard. It takes care of the campus’ nuts-and-bolts functions, as well as serves as a liaison for additional responsibilities primarily managed at the Mies Campus: phone connections, office keys, employee reimbursements, shipping and receiving, payroll, human resources, purchasing, public safety, student employment, Student Bar Association finances, and more. Details on a few of our specific responsibilities are provided below; if you have questions pertaining to any of these areas, we’re here to help.

CONTACTING US: Our offices are located on the second floor of the Conviser Law Center, Suite 265. At this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that all inquiries be made, preferably, by email or by phone.

OUR FUNCTIONS:

ADMINISTRATIVE MANUAL: Our office maintains an administrative manual covering all of our functions, policies, and procedures. It is an excellent resource, especially useful as a quick reference guide to find answers to commonly asked questions when Administration and Finance staff are not readily available. A new edition of the manual is slated for July 2021.

STAFF/FACULTY AND STUDENT REIMBURSEMENTS: Our office handles all Travel and Entertainment Reimbursement Reports for staff and faculty, and SBA student reimbursement check requests. Paperwork can be submitted to the office or placed in the Administration and Finance mailbox for processing. 

EVENT MANAGEMENT: We facilitate many aspects of event logistics for internal and external groups. Whether you’re a faculty member trying to organize a meeting space or an SBA organization needing to arrange a venue for a guest speaker, contact us to make arrangements. For university- or law school-sponsored events, submit the internal online Room Reservation Request Form. If you are an outside, non-university group that is interested in renting space for an event hosted at the Conviser Law Center, contact Ariana Monroe at amonroe3@kentlaw.iit.edu.

ID CARDS AND KEYS: Our office is responsible for programming university photo ID cards for access points on doors with card readers. However, the ID cards are issued by the campus registrar’s office (suite 220) for all current students, staff, and faculty. We also handle payments for the replacement of lost keys or IDs.

FACILITIES MANAGEMENT: Need a replacement key to your office?  Need to reset your voicemail password? Want a special room set up for a meeting? We handle the logistics of office and campus space reservations for meetings or events, as well as the ongoing maintenance of these spaces. For faculty or staff, we set up your telephone lines, issue office keys, get you name plates, and place orders for business cards. The College Service Center (suite 260), a branch of Administration and Finance, handles orders for office supplies, all shipping and receiving of packages, mail, and large photo copy orders.

Computer and printer connections are handled by Information Technology Services.  Please send an email with your request to HelpDesk@kentlaw.iit.edu.

If you would like the temperature settings changed for your personal office space, if light bulbs need replacing, or repairs are needed in your office or suite, send an email to BuildingMaintenance@kentlaw.iit.edu.

For campus emergencies, call public safety at Ext. 6-5030 or at 312.906.5030.
