Request to Present

Here is the list of sessions proposals we currently have:
If you are interested in presenting please sign up above.

Behind the scenes custom automation Discuss and share what process users are automating.  First the group will share areas of PowerCampus that they have automated or would like to automate.  I will then share some of the technical details of areas that we have automated.  Some of these areas include nightly fee assessment, automatic stop lists and importing faculty data from HR system.  If time permits we will then discuss approaches to automate the areas that the group would like to automate at their college.
Custom Integrations with PowerCampus We have multiple custom integrations that we have setup to either import or export data from or to other systems.  I will be presenting a technical overview of these integrations.  Some of the custom integrations include GP (HR/Finance), PowerFaids (Finacial Aid), Blackboard (LMS), Nebraska Books (Book store), Academic Works (Scholarship management) and curriculum on our website.
Using Codes to Organize Student Records PowerCAMPUS codes are more than just a secret language used by IT folks.  Codes can communicate a whole novel if necessary or clues to follow on a treasure hunt.  Northwest University continues to develop a variety of programs to fuel enrollment needs.  These programs run the range from a traditional semester calendar to complex calendars that overlap everything. This session will show examples of how the Registrar’s Office defines, creates, and even reevaluate academic codes in order to support current and future programs at their institution.

  • Alumnae Engagement scoring – ADR
  • New MyCSM (Ellucian Portal)
