The Banner Migration

Banner FAQ  August 2011  July 2011  March 2011  October 2010 

Sept 22, 2014

As of May 2014, Banner Advancement has been implemented to replace the legacy alumni database. University Relations is now maintaining the database of alumni and friends within a modern architecture. This will allow for easier data import of graduated students as well as providing a platform for future enhancements for our alumni system. The implementation team wishes to thank Cathy Sprenger, registrar, and her office staff who were instrumental in validating the person data prior to import into the integrated Banner system.
