Since the 1980s, WSU has opened five additional campuses, employed almost 4,000 more faculty and staff, and doubled its research expenditures and quintupled its operating budget.
And yet, in that time, no changes have been made to the core processes and systems that support it all. These legacy processes and system are paperwork heavy, ineffective, and at risk for failure with every passing year. It is time for a change. That is what the Modernization Initiative is all about, it is a push to update the human resource, payroll, and financial processes and systems to support our university today and for years to come.
