As a complex, multi-year, transformational effort, the Next Generation Student Systems program benefits from an engaged leadership team drawn from Penn's senior staff and experienced consulting partners:
Executive sponsors are Penn leaders who commissioned the program for the University. Sponsors have both the responsibility and authority to provide funding for the program.
Vice President for Finance and Treasurer
Vice President, Information Systems and Computing and University CIO
Vice Provost for Education
Executive owners are committed to the successful completion of the project and are ultimately responsible for its implementation and ongoing integration.
Executive Director of Application and Information Services, Information Systems and Computing
Executive Director, Financial Systems and Training, Division of Finance
Executive Director for Academic and Technology Planning, Office of the Provost
Executive Director, Student Registration and Financial Services
Program and project managers are responsible to the owners for progress including schedules, milestones, deliverables, and costs. They monitor and coordinate the teams’ work and lead team efforts to identify all program-related business decisions and recommend appropriate action. They also act as chief liaisons and arbitrators among technical, functional, and infrastructure groups.
