Workday Student at TCC

In April 2018, the Board approved the budget for the implementation of Workday Student as TCC’s student information system (SIS) for the five undergraduate colleges and Keck Graduate Institute. The target go-live date for the new SIS is the fall of 2021.

As project owner, Stig Lanesskog, CEO of The Claremont Colleges Services, is supported by an executive committee with representatives from the seven institutions involved (the five colleges, KGI, and TCCS).  A large part of the implementation work will be carried out by functional implementation groups (“FIGs”) , made up of staff from across all institutions.  Eleven FIGs have been created to cover all areas in scope.

In addition to the executive committee and the FIGs, the faculty advisory board, will continue to provide guidance for those aspects of the project that pertain to the faculty.

The SIS executive committee, with input from staff involved in the implementation, recommended to the presidents in the Spring that we: (a) change our go-live date to 2021; and (b) transition to a new implementation partner. Deloitte Consulting was selected as our new implementer this past June.

What’s Coming Next

With the second system prototype (P1) built by our former implementer, we have begun a transition to Deloitte Consulting.  This phase will last about eight weeks (from mid-July through September 2019), during which Deloitte will assess the current state of the implementation and conduct a re-planning of project activities. After the transition phase, Deloitte will continue working closely with the FIGs to assist in further design of college-specific solutions, help to configure the Workday Student platform, and aid TCC with system integration and data conversion activities.
