Bold Aspirations and Changing for Excellence IT Initiatives

KU IT is supporting Bold Aspirations and Changing for Excellence at KU by leading 11 key technology initiatives:

Bold Aspirations

Early Warning System // Enable faculty and staff to identify and track students who are demonstrating significant achievement in the classroom or who are having difficulties and may be at risk for not continuing their education.

Campus-wide Customer Relationship Management // Provide a comprehensive view of all KU interactions with students and allow for more effective messaging from departments communicating with specific student target audiences.

Content Management System // Ease website creation and management, and provide a more integrated and seamless visitor experience across all University websites.

Document Imaging and Workflow Solution // Help capture, store and manage documents, improving workflow for University departments and eliminating the need to store or physically shuttle paper from office to office.

Appointment Scheduling // Improve interactions and communications between faculty, advisers and students by facilitating face-to-face meetings through online scheduling.

Changing for Excellence

Server Centralization // Improve the efficiency and security of systems on campus by registering all servers and centralizing them as appropriate.

Reorganize and Redefine IT // Unite multiple distinct technical departments to build a stronger support base and improved customer service at KU.

Single Identity Management System // Create a single identity system for all students, faculty and staff across all campuses.

Network Optimization // Ensure our systems and infrastructure are seamlessly integrated, well-managed and operating at peak performance.

Leverage Software Purchasing // Maximize cost savings and increase adoption of software by consolidating purchases among departments and central IT.
