What We Do
We provide support for the Administrative computing functions on campus. This includes Advancement, all Financial areas, Student Records/Registrar, Human Resources, Campus Safety and academic departments as they relate to administration. Banner software provided by Ellucian resides on an Oracle database and is used for many functions. However, significant additional applications are locally developed and supported.
Hacking exploits have been discovered in Java, which is required by Internet Native Banner (Banner 8). The Ouch newsletter has security tips to help. We suggest enabling the Java plugin on one browser that you use for Banner. Use another browser for normal website browsing with the Java plugin disabled as described in the link at the end of the January 2013 Ouch newsletter.
Watch announcements from Human Resources for occasional Training sessions. The following documents are also useful.
