Auxiliary Enterprises is a group of departments under the Office of Administration umbrella. Overseeing both university departments and contracted departments, Auxiliary Enterprises strives to bring the highest quality service to Mason departments, students, and visitors.
Auxiliary Enterprises was created in 2008, taking over some of the units under University Services. University Services was reorganized with a focus on food services and units that provide food services on campus. In 2010 University Services and Parking & Transportation joined the Auxiliary Enterprises Department.
Under the leadership of Gregg Toney, Assistant Vice President, Auxiliary Enterprises, the new department defined its mission as providing high level support services to the university. To meet that mission, they have expanded beyond its core units and Auxiliary Enterprises participates in many areas on campus, including facilities construction and renovation project planning, budget planning for all units under its parent division, and generating new revenue programs for the university. Auxiliary Enterprises is there to assist any area with support for new programs and projects, budget consultation, facilities planning, management analysis and project coordination.
