What Can We Help You With?
What is Workday@Simmons?
Workday is an innovative, cloud-based software solution which replaced older systems, such as Colleague and AARC, as of Fall 2021. The majority of Academic, Financial, Human Resources, and many other processes now take place in a single system: Workday.
Some specialty Academic software - including Moodle and Starfish - continues to be used.
The mission of the Workday project was to transform, modernize, and simplify administrative processes at Simmons in order to improve workflows, ensure data accuracy and transparency, and strengthen the University’s position in the higher education marketplace to ensure long-term success.
