Dear Russ,

My apologies for not getting this out sooner to you, but I’d like to extend a sincere thank you to you and your team for organizing such a wonderful Banner Foundations class! Not only was the content “spot on”, but the tag-team presentation was engaging and very well organized. Kudos to the “Jen’s”, Jan and Lisa for a great team effort!

While I know this was a busy time to begin our training modules, these classes serve much more than just physical training for our Banner users. They’re putting a face to the new ITS and the positive feedback (both for the training and your new analysts) is invaluable.

Thanks again for making this a priority,

Tracy

Tracy Immerso ‘86 Manager of Academic Operations
The ITS Analyst Team (Jen DeMartino, Jan Freddino, Jen Langlais and Lisa Nagy) created and presented 3 sessions of “Banner Foundations Training” during the last week of February.
The training was developed at the request of Academic Affairs and was presented to roughly 30 program assistants and other newly-hired Banner users. We anticipate and look forward to working further with campus departments to help address their Banner training needs.
We plan to offer a limited number of additional Banner Foundations training session this Spring based on demand.  If you are interested in attending a future Banner Foundations class, please email ITSTRAINING@Fairfield.edu

Note from the CIO

image Spring is so close, right? We are currently in the middle of Spring Recess and - what? - expecting snow today or tomorrow. Hopefully this is winter’s last gasp.

We have been extraordinarily busy in Information Technology Services (ITS) this month. Several high-profile, high-impact projects in full swing including DegreeWorks, a new solution and service to improve University advising, schedule planning and self-service for students (new, current and prospective). Our Argos project kicks off in April and promises to dramatically impact campus reporting and analytics.

March Madness

  • Budget planning for fiscal year 2015. In support of many Fairfield 2020 initiatives and, frankly, because it’s time, we are planning for a multi-year infrastructure improvement overhaul. Pretty? No. Eye-catching? Absolutely not. Necessary? YES. Exciting? For ITS for sure. For highly connected students? YES. We need to make sure that as we provide more and more online that our users can access the ‘more’ via their devices of choice. Access points, core, switches - oh my! Again, this is a multi-year, high-cost project. Watch us grow!

  • Did I mention Fairfield 2020? Many task forces, much collaboration, great lecture series and just getting started! As Chair of the Back Office Operations Task Force, I am overly excited for the mission to identify ways to streamline process to impact effectiveness resulting in tangible cost savings to the University.

  • Our first ITS Technology Annual Report (2013-2014) will be presented to the Technology Committee of the Board of Trustees the last week in March. We’ve solicited for faculty feedback based on Dean recommendation. We continue to enhance and improve. Official unveiling will be toward the middle of the summer. So much accomplished. This ITS team, YOUR technology team, amazes me every day.

I hope everyone has a wonderful last sprint to summer. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance to you and yours. Speak with you soon -
