Steering Committee Notes

The CMS steering committee continued monthly meetings, chaired by VP Bob Palmer. At the May meeting, the committee approved the proposed mission of the CMS Security Committee (to develop campus-wide procedures for processing security access requests and granting access and to ensure internal controls for safeguarding data are established) and submitted names of individuals to serve on that committee. They discussed CMS communications and recommended continued presentations to various campus groups and the publishing of Hardcopy Highlights, a hard-copy summary of the CMS on-line newsletter Project Watch. Members agreed to ensure Academic Affairs representation at the Academic Advising Workshop to be conducted by CSULB staff in late June.

At the June meeting, the committee reviewed the current project plan and approved the appointment of the following additional CMS Steering Committee members, Susan Kachner, Nancy Dority, Harry Norman and two student representatives. They approved the members for the Finance Management Team and the Student Administration Management Team. Amir Dabirian conducted a demonstration of the Self Service functionality scheduled for release in August.

At the July meeting, Chair Bob Palmer welcomed new members Nancy Dority, Susan Kachner and Harry Norman, who represent the Student project management team. Amir presented three options with corresponding pros and cons for Student project go live dates. The Student management team will consult with other campuses regarding their go live experiences and bring their research and recommendation back to the Steering Committee. Amir presented issues relative to the academic advising module versus DARS following which members identified pros and cons of available options and determined that any decision be made with care and thorough knowledge of implications. The meeting concluded with a demonstration of the part-time faculty hiring process.
