WyoCloud March TownHall_3/2/2017

University of Wyoming Provost Kate Miller will host a town-hall meeting for the UW community Thursday, March 2, to discuss WyoCloud, the university’s new cloud-based finance, administrative, research support and reporting system. The meeting will take place in the Wyoming Union West Ballroom from 9-11 a.m. UW President Laurie Nichols has approved two hours of release time for UW employees to attend. The scheduling of release time should be a collaborative discussion between employee and supervisor to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the unit. Miller will speak about what the WyoCloud project means to UW and the groundbreaking work in higher education that the university is leading. WyoCloud team leaders will explain how the new system will affect everyone on campus in some way, and they will answer questions. Team leaders also will talk about the new Business Intelligence Student Reporting dashboards going live March 6 and how these dashboards contribute to UW’s academic mission. Changes to travel and expense, procurement and grants will be shown to begin to prepare campus for the new WyoCloud finance system that will be released in July. Additionally, the new budgeting model will be discussed.
