How was Workday Student selected?

A 24-person selection committee initially recommended Workday Student in 2017 as part of the MyDay project, which selected and implemented Workday HCM and Finance. A major consideration of this recommendation was the desire to have a unified platform for HR, finance and student administration, in addition to having core functionality to support academic and student operations at WashU. 

This recommendation was revisited and reaffirmed in 2019 when more than 100 staff representing academic units across the university were able to see how the Workday Student system has advanced since it was first reviewed. This group’s input reconfirmed that Workday Student is the right system for WashU.
