A new student information system is on the horizon.
Brock students, staff and faculty are invited to provide their input regarding the current challenges and future opportunities related to the current student information system (SIS) as well as to share their feedback regarding the services provided by several student information system providers.
The current SIS is a constellation of more than a dozen individual applications and databases that includes over 1,000 different functional pages. Maintaining the system beyond 2020 would require significant capital and human resources to provide any substantial improvements in functionality, stability or security. The preservation of this system could also inhibit the University’s responsiveness to meet future needs and goals.
As a result, the initiation of the SIS Modernization Project has begun. The project was created to provide a unified, dynamic and student-centric platform that transforms how students, staff, and faculty use the information that supports the essential services and functions that facilitate student success in an increasingly complex and competitive environment.
The success of the project is dependent on ongoing stakeholder engagement. To enhance stakeholders’ knowledge and understanding of the new student information system options, the campus community is invited to several vendor demonstrations, with first taking place on Feb. 21. Interested participants may register for a demonstration of the Workday Student information system by using the Brock University Focus on Learning Site.
Subsequent presentation information will be posted at a later date.
Any further questions on the new SIS may be sent to Rico Natale, Student Information Services — User Experience Lead, at firstname.lastname@example.org
