Brandy Norwood is the new business manager for the Institute for a Secure and Sustainable Environment (ISSE). She has worked in multiple non-academic units across campus, and is herself a UT grad with a BA in business administration (management major with a collateral in entrepreneurship). She is currently working on an MBA for business analytics.
“I cover anything business related for ISSE,” she said.
Her responsibilities include coordinating departmental budgets for research and income accounts, general ledger accounting, approvals of financial transactions, supervision of a small departmental support staff, financial analyses and preparation of reports for purposes of strategic planning, and surveys and program accreditation.
“I am extremely adaptable to new software and reporting,” said Norwood. In addition to her management acumen, she is skilled in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and more. She also has experience with in-house reporting with Banner, Argos, IRIS, and Business Warehouse. She “dabbles” in database design and implementation.
Norwood is originally from Greenville, South Carolina, and enjoys time outdoors, particularly camping, hiking, fly fishing, kayaking, and creative expression.
“I am an artist,” she said. “Painting, sculpting, and anything else depending on mood.”
