Student Information System Project Commences Assessment Phase

Brock University continues its progress toward a new student information system (SIS) with a series of workshops in October and November.  Starting October 15th, Deloitte Canada will lead workshops with university staff and faculty.  These workshops will help the Brock community:

  • Define the capabilities that Brock will require from a modern student information system
  • Assess these capabilities against the Workday Student functionality
  • Provide a basis of artifacts required for Brock to make an informed decision
  • Create a model to define and track return on investment for any future Workday Student implementation
