Advisory Work Groups

Advisory Work Groups are small, concentrated groups of WSU experts who specialize in a specific functional area. Group members participated in Design Sessions, working closely in discussions with their peers as well as WSU Modernization and Deloitte analysts. These groups include members from multiple locations and perspectives, ensuring that decisions are made in the best interest of the institution. Advisory Work Group members use their expertise and experience to review and inform decisions about business process configuration. They will actively identify policy changes, recommend solutions, and help gather information from their peers across units.

If you have any questions regarding a specific topic or function falling under the jurisdiction of a particular work group, please contact the group chairperson at the indicated email. 

In an effort to foster project transparency, full Advisory Work Group rosters are available upon request. Please email modern.initiative@wsu.edu with questions or feedback.
