New student information system transition project underway
By next year our student information system—the central place where the university stores all student records—will no longer be the same.
That’s because a work group, comprised of faculty and staff, will be working to transition the university from using Colleague as our student information system to a new product called CampusNexus from Anthology. This new system, which will offer many additional capabilities outside of housing student records, will help to create new efficiencies for the university in serving students.
Some of the benefits of CampusNexus include automated financial aid processes, guided pathways to student success, automated and optimized faculty workloads, and centralized student reporting. Additionally, the new system will provide students with easier access to class registration and help facilitate better communication with advisors and faculty through their mobile device.
Last week, the Department of Information Technology asked faculty and staff across the university to help select a special name for this transition project. Thanks to all those who participated, the most popular name was Project Roaring Records. This name will help inspire the work group and keep everyone on the same page when it comes to work that is needed to bring the transition to completion.
Faculty and staff can look forward to receiving additional updates about our transition to a new student information system in upcoming Community news stories and by email.
