In Workday, a business process is an automated workflow that routes tasks to designated users. These processes will improve student experience and make operations more consistent and efficient.
These sessions are the first of five throughout the project that will ensure an understanding of the effects of key changes on our culture, people, roles, processes, policies and systems.
Experts from across the university are ensuring quality data for Workday Student.
Academic units are the primary organizational structure in Workday Student. They are used to represent schools, divisions or any other unit that admits students, offers programs of study or offers courses. Academic units are structured together to manage academic process flows, security access, Workday rule inheritance and reporting.
Schools and units will retire their individual advising systems to create a unified experience for students and advisors across the university.
