Building the Foundation for a Renewed Future: Exploring Workday Student

March 06, 2023

At UBC, we are continuing our mission to modernize university-wide administrative processes, with the renewal of our Student Information System (SIS). Workday, UBC’s renewed, reliable, and secure student information system will serve as a foundation for a modern educational experience, and support UBC’s academic mission, both today and into the future. Read this blog to learn more about how Workday will benefit our UBC community; including how the way we work at UBC will be transformed to create a cohesive, integrated, and enriched experience for students, staff, and faculty for many years to come.


Assessing how ready UBC is for the transition to Workday Student

March 01, 2023

At UBC, we pursue excellence. The Integrated Renewal Program ‒ Student (IRP Student) will transform the way UBC supports learning and research with the creation of a critical foundation for a modern educational experience. Workday Student will be the anchor system replacing our current Student Information System (SIS). 

This renewed, reliable, and secure student information system will serve as a foundation to support UBC’s academic mission both today and into the future. Starting in October 2023, a portion of UBC Staff will begin transitioning to Workday Student, with remaining users making the move in early 2024.

As we move closer to the end of 2022, the Integrated Renewal Program – Student (IRP Student) would like to take a moment to reflect on all the achievements we have made and thank all our stakeholders for their continued support and contributions throughout the past year.  

2022 marked a significant year for the program as we moved through the Design phase into the Build phase. In the Build phase design input gathered from the community will be incorporated into Workday Student, its integrations, and newly created point solutions.
