Congratulations to Workday on the release of Workday Student! Workday Student encompasses everything from student recruiting, admissions, curriculum management, student records, academic advising, financial aid, and student financials. At Sierra-Cedar, we’re excited to be a Workday Student partner because we believe this system will be able to transform the entire higher education industry.
Workday Student is built for the way universities and colleges work today and into the future, helping institutions embrace new learning models and capture all student accomplishments, ultimately aiding in bridging the gap from education to occupation. As a Workday Student partner, Sierra-Cedar is proud of our ongoing relationship with Indian River State College (IRSC), the first college outside of the original design partner group to deploy Workday Student. IRSC has fully invested in the entire suite of Workday’s products, including Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management (HCM). Additionally, Sierra-Cedar and IRSC continue to work together to deploy the remaining suite of Workday Student functionality. Dr. Meredith Coughlin, director of IRSC’s Workday Student System, shared:
“Thanks to our partnership with Sierra-Cedar, our deployment has been a huge success! Its knowledge of higher education and ongoing support has ensured a smooth deployment. Now, personnel at all levels across the institution can see relevant, real-time information about the new incoming class of IRSC students. We’re very excited for the future of recruitment here at IRSC and look forward to continuing our partnership with Sierra-Cedar.”
Sierra-Cedar is a trusted advisor to the higher education community. At its inception, Sierra-Cedar’s Workday Higher Education practice supported Broward College, the first school in the Workday ecosystem to go live with Workday Financial Management and Workday HCM in a very aggressive time frame of just 12 months. Since that time, Sierra-Cedar has supported more than 28 colleges and universities that have deployed Workday Financial Management and Workday HCM, and we’re now looking towards deployment of Workday Student in order to take advantage of Workday’s full suite of products that support higher education.
“With our passion for serving the higher education industry, we understand the evolving needs that colleges, universities, and students face, including the ways they want to work,” said John Harrison, vice president of Workday Higher Education Services, Sierra-Cedar. “Given Workday’s proven track record, we’re proud to be a Workday Student partner, as we believe this system can ultimately bridge the gap between education and occupation.”
