Integrated Support Services (ISS) open forum sessions scheduled

The Integrated Support Services (ISS) project team has begun sharing project findings and recommendations to a variety of stakeholders across campus. A schedule for broad campus communication has also been finalized and is included below.

Goals for the presentation meetings are:

  • Develop an understanding of the current state for in-scope functions
  • Share the proposed model and how it will address challenges in the current state
  • Receive and respond to questions about the project or the proposed model

Project Open Forum sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, with approximately 45 minutes for the presentation and 45 minutes for questions and discussion.  Functional Open Forum sessions will provide an opportunity to discuss ISS as it relates to each of the in-scope functions in more detail. Those sessions are scheduled for two hours in order to provide more function-specific details in the presentation and more time for discussion.

The meetings scheduled below are open to all UWM faculty and staff. Please plan to attend one of the sessions and encourage others to attend with you. The project sponsors are very interested in hearing from as many people as possible to ensure questions and concerns are addressed as the project moves into the Detailed Design phase.
