What is the Integrated Services Renewal Program?
Excellent universities require administrative services that are aligned to support and facilitate their mission. At USask, we have created the Integrated Services Renewal Program to effectively leverage our processes, data, people, and technology as we look to the future. We want to determine how to most efficiently support the university’s interconnected needs for student, finance, human resources, procurement, and other services.
Our goal is to understand the university's options to transform current-state services to future-ready, user-focused, integrated services. We are working together to create a future-state roadmap to ensure agility and support USask to be the “university the world needs”.
To achieve USask’s commitment of Boundless Collaboration, physical and virtual environments across our campus must enable a connected, collaborative, and welcoming community.
However, we still have much work to do in modernizing our administrative services. We must make sure our services and technologies are efficient, adaptable and provide the consistency required to support data-driven decisions. Through the Integrated Services Renewal Program, we will address gaps and deficiencies in our service environment to effectively deliver core services to our campus community.
