SIS Ecosystem

The Student Information System (SIS) Project aims to re-envision and improve the student experience at UC San Diego. The reality, however, is that one project alone, no matter how large or complex, cannot do this. The SIS Project team is responsible for overseeing the work of more than just the SIS Project; the team is also responsible for the oversight of other key projects with connections to the student-experience and existing student-related systems.

The SIS Project team is currently overseeing or contributing to more than ten distinct projects, all of which contribute in some way to the success of the SIS Project. This includes three main projects and work to prepare for and support those three projects. The responsibilities of the SIS Project team for each of these additional projects varies from full responsibility for project execution to oversight of change management activities to awareness of ongoing project progress. The SIS Project team refers to all of this work, collectively, as the "SIS Ecosystem."

The three main projects of the SIS Ecosystem are:

  • Choosing and implementing a new system to replace our current SIS
  • Choosing and implementing a curriculum management system
  • Implementing Oracle Student Financial Planning (SFP) to replace ProSAM, our current financial aid system

The four key areas where supporting work is currently taking place for the ecosystem are: 

  • Preparation work
  • Continuity planning
  • Lessons learned
  • Change management
