Geaux Forward Bulletin, Issue 14

Issue 14: November 17, 2017

Current Work & Accomplishments 

  • This week, the Project Team had feedback gathering sessions with graduate and undergraduate advisors. There were 28 attendees across the 3 sessions. 
  • A town hall scenario presentation specific to students was held on November 17. The town hall provided student representatives an opportunity to learn more about what the Geaux Forward project is and to view an overview of basic functionality in Workday Student.
  • IT Governance met on November 14. Tom Glenn provided an update on the Geaux Forward project and a preview of the components to be included in the scorecard recommendation. These components can be seen at http://www.lsu.edu/geauxforward/scorecard.php

Upcoming Work & Milestones

  • Feedback gathering sessions are continuing with Administrative Coordinators and College Recruiters. If you are a member of one of these groups and need information about these, please email geauxforward@lsu.edu 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.
