Why is the project called Student Sunrise?

The name “Student Sunrise” symbolizes a new beginning for our systems and processes, as well as our desire to bring to light the data and information needed to improve areas of our student experience.​ The name thematically connects to Workday, the new Student information system we are implementing, as well as to MyDay, the WashU project that launched Workday HCM and Finance.  

A separate and distinct name for the Student Sunrise project helps to build trust and provide consistency in how we present the project to the university community. It also ensures that communications and activities associated with the project are not lost.
