Process Teams

Process Teams carry out the implementation plan for each major EISE operational system; Finance, Human Resources, Student/Degree Audit and Alumni Development.  Each Process Team is the primary liaison between groups and offices involved in their particular system/solution implementation. Process Teams are composed of people who are closely affected by the processes of the system they are working to create and implement.

The Process Team Leader will be the chairperson and facilitator for the team.
