On our way to MyDay

We are embarking on a once-in-a-generation project that will help all of us support and advance our mission well into the future.

MyDay is about developing new ways to use and manage the data needed to run our complex organization. Through this multi-year program, we will replace aging administrative systems and establish consistent processes across the university, giving our people easier access to information to make strategic decisions and further supporting the important contributions they make each day to the university.
