Treasury Operations at American University

The Treasury Operations department within the Office of Finance and Treasurer provides cash management services to the university community by overseeing the university's liquidity and initiating electronic payments for university obligations. The department assists with debt management, and the administration of credit card acceptance for goods and services, including assigning merchant ID numbers. Treasury Operations also administers the university's endowment and works with brokers to manage donor stock gifts. The department serves as a liaison between banks, financial institutions, credit card processors, and the university.
