The Campus Connectors group was originally called the Office Manager Development Group (OMDG) when it started in January 2007. The stated initial purpose of this professional development program was to provide members with a way to exchange ideas and to develop their skills and abilities.
In April 2008, President’s Council "VOTED to approve hourly pay for office managers while attending the Office Manager’s Group functions. These functions are primarily designed for professional development."
Over time the group has come to be known as Campus Connectors, based on their role in connecting and supporting the various departments and divisions across campus.
