MyUB Student Services Transformation Project
We are implementing a student information system that will fundamentally change how student services are delivered at UB.
How will this affect my view of the portal?
What lies ahead?
Why are we doing this?
In 2008, as part of the UB 2020 initiatives, the campus engaged in the Student Systems Assessment Project to identify ways to improve the delivery of services for students, faculty and staff. Our prototyping work using PeopleSoft's Enterprise Portal to replicate or improve existing MyUB capabilities using only delivered options was completed in November 2009. At the conclusion of our prototyping efforts, the project opted to retain our current legacy portal platform, MyUB. We intend to use information gained during prototyping to bring improvements to MyUB as part of the Student Services Transformation (SST) Project.
MyUB will serve as the access point to the new HUB for authorized undergraduate applicants, students, faculty and staff. (The HUB was initially referred to as the UB Student Information System or UBSIS.)
Some transactional services and information currently provided throughout different parts of MyUB (via pages, channels and links) will now be consolidated within the new HUB. (In addition to the consolidation, new and enhanced information and transactional services will be available via the new system.)
In preparation for these changes, we will be making adjustments to the current MyUB interface over time as outlined in the diagram above.
As with other UB 2020 initiatives, Student Services Transformation Project has outlined a plan for training and communication for the new system. More details will follow.
