Archived Project Updates

For Department Heads: SIS #9

This update focuses on what we've experienced and learned through 10 days of student advance registration.  I appreciate the tremendous amount of work and support that many of you have provided as we register our first sizable groups of students using the new system.  As you will note from my comments that follow, we are experiencing a mix of reactions to the new system and there is a degree of confusion (which I will try to rectify) about which issues are system issues versus human or other.

1.  Fall Schedule of Classes.  Last Monday was the deadline for submitting information for the fall schedule of classes and all departments have made submissions!  Thanks to all who contributed to this very important effort.  The Registrar's staff is now verifying the information submitted, University Book and Supply is gathering ISBN numbers and prices for textbooks, and the overall process is proceeding as planned.  Access will remain open for department schedulers to update/edit enrollment and textbook information as needed.

For Department Heads: SIS update #2

This is my second update on the implementation of UNI's new student information system (SIS).  We've added another important group to this communication -- current "mainframe" users.  This new list was created by assembling the email addresses of all UNI persons who currently have access at least one part of the current student information system, referred to generally as "the mainframe."  Because it is not possible for us to determine specifically the reason that any given person uses the mainframe, I will share updates with all of you.

For Department Heads: SIS update #1

The project and technical teams have been working diligently to implement our new PeopleSoft student information system (SIS). The new system will mean change for everyone who uses it. Our goals will be to implement a system that best meets your needs and the needs of the University, to keep you apprised of the planned changes, and to work with colleges, departments, faculty and staff to successfully adapt to the changes.
