This week, the Project Team had one feedback gathering session with graduate advisors.
We had five very engaged participants and really learned a lot about graduate student
advising processes from them.
Two town hall scenario presentations were held on November 7 and 8 with a total of
72 attendees between the two meetings. The town halls provided 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 underway.
An All Campus Summit was held in Alexandria at LSUA on Friday, November 10. The summit
was attended by representatives of LSU A&M, LSUA, LSUE, LSUHSC New Orleans and Shreveport
and LSUS with the purpose of providing input to the IT Governance committee on Workday
Student from the central office stakeholders of the Student Module (Recruiting & Admissions,
Student Records, Financial Aid, and Student Financials).
Answers to questions posed to the Project Team from various meetings around campus,
including Town Halls, Associate & Assistant Deans Meetings and Informational Meetings,
are being posted to our new FAQ page on the project website.
Upcoming Work & Milestones
Feedback gathering sessions are continuing with Undergraduate & Graduate Advisors,
Administrative Coordinators, and faculty who work with the course offering, helping
students with registration related questions regarding wait listing, prerequisites,
etc.. If you are a member of one of these groups and need information about these,
please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We’re looking for further feedback from anyone whose current
work touches the student systems on the mainframe.
Another set of feedback gathering sessions have been added for college recruiters.
These sessions will be held Tuesday, November 28 from 8-10 a.m., Wednesday, November
29 from 1-3 p.m. and Friday, December 1 from 1-3 p.m. in Frey 212/213. Recruiters
can RSVP for this session at http://www.lsu.edu/geauxforward/recruiter-rsvp.php.
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.
A student focused scenario presentation will be held on Friday, November 17 at 12:30
p.m. in Room 204, Tureaud Hall for Student Government representatives. The presentation
will be similar to those held for the general campus community with more focus specifically
on the student experience.
