Welcome to OSUAP

Mission Statement

The OSUAP is a self-organized group of Ohio State administrative staff who recognize the value of our contributions to our departments, units, and by extension, to the university. We are committed to ongoing professional development and networking to facilitate our professional growth, while positively impacting our supervisors, coworkers, and supporting the mission of the University.

Primary Goals:

  • Align activities with the University’s goals and values
  • Encourage professional development
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Network with peers

January’s Bi-Monthly Meeting – Follow-Up WORKDAY Event for Administrative Professionals –  January 22, 12:00-1:00 pm

  • Workday is live. OSUAP will host a Workday presentation on January 22 (12 pm – 1 pm).
  • In November, we hosted Janis Wolens, Project Manager for OCIO Communications and Training, for a Workday presentation and received positive feedback. Janis will be returning for the follow-up Workday presentation on January 22.
  • As part of the registration process, we would like you to review this Workday survey as you utilize the tool; survey closes on January 18th. Please be honest – this survey is anonymous. We will be sharing these results with Janis before the event to provide the most needed information.
