ESUP - Student Systems Town Hall


Attend a town hall meeting to learn how the Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program (ESUP) will change the way students, faculty, and staff interact with the University. The changes discussed will be implemented in February, 2015 - less than a year away!

This meeting will focus on the student system--a key component of this multi-year effort to upgrade the University's systems and reexamine business processes. It covers admissions, financial aid, student finance, student records, and more. You will hear leaders of our student system talk about the changes and improvements that will happen as result of ESUP. We will also hear from a representative of the new myU portal effort on their progress. There will be time to ask questions or voice concerns about the student systems upgrade effort.

New recruitment tool for graduate programs

| No Comments

Graduate programs can now communicate with and recruit prospective students in a more measured way by using the new Connect system. Connect is an add-on recruitment system that fully integrates with the ApplyYourself admissions system used for applications. Connect features an online request for information page for initial inquiries, the ability to schedule and send customized emails, reporting tools to track recruiting efforts, and more.

For more information, contact Dean Tsantir.

On April 9, University President Eric Kaler, Governor Mark Dayton, Senator Al Franken, and Office of Higher Education director Larry Pogemiller engaged University students and others in a round table discussion about college affordability and financial literacy. The chat took place in STSS and was followed by a tour of One Stop Student Services. One Stop Director Julie Selander and Vice Provost and Dean Bob McMaster also showed the group an active learning classroom and University Veterans Services. Julie briefly explained ASR's "Live Like a Student Now So You Don't Have To Later" financial literacy campaign.

"E-Review - Part 2!" is a half-day workshop on graduate admissions consisting of several short demonstrations, a Q & A session, and a networking lunch. Ten speakers from different programs will demonstrate technology tools used to create electronic processes related to the applicant file review and the decision stages of graduate admissions. A catered networking lunch with the opportunity for participants to share best practices with each other will follow the presentations.

More information and a link for registration are available on the Graduate School spring workshop page.
