The Project Team also continues to prepare for campus demonstrations of LSU-specific
scenarios. These scenarios will be demonstrated for the first time at the Associate
and Assistant Dean's meeting on November 3. Further town halls will be held on November
7 from 3 – 5 p.m. in Room 10, Lockett Hall and November 8 from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. in
room E-130, Howe-Russell. These town halls will provide an opportunity for the campus
community to learn more about what the Geaux Forward project is and to view an overview
of basic functionality in Workday Student as part of the Fit & Feasibility Study currently
Elahe Russell, Executive Director in Bursar Operations, was featured in this month’s
Graduate Staff Spotlight. We noted she mentioned the Student Systems Modernization Project and are excited
to continue to work with Elahe!
Upcoming Work & Milestones
Reminder: Brown Bag Lunch and Learns have been scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday.
The extended video showing Workday Student functionality is 3 hours long and has been
split into two 1½ hour portions. Part One will be shown October 30 from 11 a.m. –
1 p.m. with Part Two following on October 31 at the same time. Both sessions will
be held in Frey 206/207. A WebEx offering is also available at the same time. To RSVP
or to request WebEx information, visit http://www.lsu.edu/geauxforward/rsvp.php. To date, 42 people have attended the first 2 video showings: 17 from Academic Colleges,
International Programs and Student Life, 25 from Payroll, Bursar, Accounting, Payables,
ITS and University Audit.
Feedback gathering sessions have been scheduled with Associate & Assistant Deans,
Counselors, Undergraduate & Graduate Advisors, Administrative Coordinators, and faculty
who work with the course offering, helping students with registration related questions
regarding waitlisting, prerequisites, etc.. If you are a member of one of these groups
and need information about these, please email email@example.com for more information. We’re looking for further feedback from anyone whose current
work touches the student systems on the mainframe.
In preparation for the go-no-go decision in December, team leadership will be meeting
with each IT Governance member individually to document their needs for data on the
scorecard. These meetings are currently being scheduled through the month of November.
