This represents FY2020 BU Metrics.

Methodology: We took the number of offices and departments on campus and verified at least one liaison per office or department.

Knowing that each office and department holds a percent of the total staff and faculty; we then added the percent of staff and faculty to get the represented percent of "number of employees served".
