PeopleSoft Campus Solutions on-site readiness surveys to begin Tuesday, June 19
PeopleSoft consultant John Gleason will be on campus starting Tuesday, June 19, to conduct readiness interviews with UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students. UW-Eau Claire's transition from in-house developed, mainframe-based student administrative systems to the UW System Common Systems initiative was announced April 11 by Chancellor Brian Levin-Stankevich in a memo to the campus community.

UW-Eau Claire's Learning and Technology Services seeks as much input as possible as the university makes this transition. Interview invitations were sent to some areas of campus, but if you did not receive one and would like to participate in the interviews, please plan to attend one of the group sessions scheduled for the following times:

  • 1-2 p.m. Tuesday, June 19
  • 9-10 a.m. Wednesday, June 20
  • 1:30-2:30 p.m. Monday, June 25

All sessions will be held in the NET conference room, OL 2101. Those who cannot attend one of the group sessions may contact Chip Eckardt at eckardpp@uwec.edu to schedule an individual appointment.

Full story. More information about the conversion can be found on the LTS Web site. Go to top of page
