SIS Project: What We’ve Heard (November 2023)

In October, we continued our engagements with the university community by meeting with the School of Medicine, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Student Leadership, Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science and School of Arts and Humanities. The Student Information System (SIS) Project team delivered a presentation that included project context, impact, timeline and a Q&A session. 

All of the groups we met with in October were remarkably engaged with the SIS Project presentations, they asked many important questions and gave noteworthy feedback. Here are some of the themes we heard and discussed:

  • Impact: Different groups are asking how the new SIS will impact them and their areas of responsibility. 
  • System Access: Concerns about issues with current access and future system access were expressed. 
  • Funding: The groups are starting to inquire about graduate student funding relating to the new Financial Support and Payments Tool. 
  • Change Freeze: We have started to talk about the upcoming change freeze which led to questions about the timeline and implementation. More information about the change freeze is forthcoming and questions about the freeze can be directed to the team at

Thank you to the groups we met in October. Please know that your voice is being heard and that your engagement is indispensable to our success. We hope to continue the conversation with the university community quarterly. 

If we have not met with you yet, we are eager to meet with you to better understand your unique needs and concerns for the project. If you’d like to invite the SIS Project team to join a department/team meeting, please email us at
