EDGE Learning Supports Employee Training & Professional Development

The University makes a number of courses available to employees, from compliance trainings to professional development opportunities. To better unlock the potential of University employees, a more robust learning management system (LMS) was needed. Administrative Technologies collaborated with the Division of Human Resources and many others to launch the Employee Development, Growth & Engagement (EDGE) Learning platform in November 2020.

EDGE’s modern, mobile-friendly web interface provides a better user experience for employees and streamlines the online process for required trainings. The new system is helping the University foster its larger vision for employee career planning, professional growth and life-long learning. Required trainings, such as information security and harassment prevention, were available in EDGE upon system launch.

Moving forward, the new centralized LMS creates an opportunity for more colleges and departments to shift their professional development into EDGE Learning, giving more visibility to the entire spectrum of continued professional growth for employees.

Groundwork Laid for Financials Modernization

After a short delay due to the pandemic, the Financials Modernization Project completed its initial planning phase.

Tremendous effort was taken to engage the business community in sharing their needs and participating in the process.

Work continues on this multi-phase, multi-year project to provide increased financial clarity, a more standardized Chart of Accounts, and more streamlined business processes for financial management at the University.
