A project of this scale and reach requires engagement at all levels. Our Project Executive Sponsors and Steering Committee are composed of leaders from across schools and academic units that represent the diverse interests of our campus community. The project itself has more than 100 dedicated members.

The Project Management Office (PMO) and Workstream Team Leads are responsible for managing these team members and the day-to-day operations and responsibilities of the project. A dedicated group devoted to communications, change management and training will work across the project team to understand change impacts and ensure consistent and timely campus engagement.

Executive Sponsors

The Committee will partner to foster global project success, consider impacts across campus units, and leverage this joint understanding in project decision-making. The committee is designed to serve as a point of escalation for project team members on cross-functional implications from process and/or policy changes.
