'Workday Champion Network' to Help SLU's Transition from Banner


As announced in September, SLU has selected Workday to replace Banner as its new administrative system. The move to Workday will provide more modern tools while enabling improvements to SLU’s business processes.

Two open forums were held in May, to solicit University community feedback. The forums discussed simplified business processes as well as ways to get involved in the project.

As part of the transition, the project team is creating a Workday Champion Network to help promote awareness around the project and to prepare the SLU community for this important transition.
