Change Network

Our goal is to organize leaders at all levels of the university to coordinate Kuali COI communication so end users hear the right messages from the right people.

Building a Change Network of informed individuals in every college, unit and medical center provides a local support structure that can better anticipate and meet the needs of UC San Diego's diverse group of stakeholders.

The Kuali COI Change Network:

  • Includes members from across the university and medical center leadership, supervisors and employees - to build awareness of the project and its impact
  • Provides structure to facilitate communication using local, established channels
  • Supports feedback and two-way communication between those affected by the project
  • Requires members to attend meetings, share communications, track unit readiness and present updates at existing departmental meetings. 

The network is led by Change Lead Jennifer Ford with Nicole Joyce, Kuali Research Change Lead, because the Kuali projects have a similar audience that requires the same information.

Find your change network representative in the list below for more about how your unit is planning to adopt the new Kuali COI system.
