What is ESUP?
The Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program (ESUP) will bring changes to the ways that students, faculty, and staff take care of business with the University. While upgrading the technical platforms of our Student, HR, and Finance systems, University staff are making a concerted effort as part of President Kaler’s Operational Excellence initiative. The goal is to create a technical platform that allows us to adopt more best practices within higher education. We will strive to simplify, streamline, and improve our services. If we are successful, we will become more nimble and responsive in our way of doing business.
ESUP was chartered to:
Analyze all of the business processes that use our core systems
- Simplify our systems wherever possible
Streamline business processes in ways that meet our needs
Take advantage of delivered functionality in the systems to the fullest extent possible.
Meet day one operational reporting needs
Integrate business processes in a unified user experience, a new MyU Portal
Provide change management, training, and support that inspires confident, competent users
Collaborate across functional and organizational boundaries in ways that position the University to provide more excellent operations
To stay up-to-date with these changes, please sign up for ESUP’s electronic newsletter, The Upgrade , check out our blog for regular updates, or contact us directly with your questions and feedback.
