The “Missouri Model” will be a framework for a student information system that promotes student success and facilitates lifelong learning from the prospective student through alumnus while recognizing unique student populations.

Define and develop a scalable, adaptable, and sustainable integrated system of software, tools, and common practices that meet the critical needs of the University of Missouri System as a whole and each campus individually.

  • Submitted final report to Gary Allen and Steve Graham, August 1, 2017.

    • Clarity concerning how the campuses should be the same and where they should be different.
    • The need for a governance structure that aligns with the System’s organizational structure.
    • Opportunities in the current environment.
    • The need for a highly architected student system that allows for integration of additional and necessary support systems
  • Reviewing change recommendations made within the final report. The team made recommendations based on changes to the current system (v9.0), during the upgrade to v9.2, and/or a future system. These recommendations are being analyzed by the EAS team to determine feasibility of the change and next steps.
  • A consultant from AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers) has been hired to provide feedback on the committee process, outcomes and assist in communicating to the UMAOs what the necessary next steps must be.

This month’s work (October, 2017):

  • Team leads are meeting with their respective provosts to discuss the September 19th presentation and get feedback on stated focus moving forward.
  • Articulate options for a new student information system.
  • Continue reviewing change recommendations.
