It was a near-miss, potential disaster that galvanized the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Oklahoma (OU) into taking action, says Dr. Rhonda Dean-Kyncl, assistant dean for college academic services. Her office staff is responsible for safely handling the entire academic histories of more than 8,000 students.
Until a few years ago, her office used a traditional hard-copy, paper file system to manage these records, and this method was growing increasingly unwieldy and inefficient. Then the flood of 2010 happened. During the campus’ winter break, a pipe in the third-floor ceiling burst, inundating the north end of the building. If the pipe had ruptured in the south end, all the student records from the College of Arts & Sciences would have been destroyed, says Dr. Kyncl. It was too close for comfort; a change was definitely required.
Join us for a FREE webinar on Thursday, June 27th to learn how the University of Oklahoma’s transition from paper to digital has revolutionized not only its disaster recovery processes, but its ability to deliver superior student services faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.
Dr. Kyncl and Crystal Ary, project manager of admissions at OU, will take webinar participants on an engaging, frank, and frequently amusing journey through their digital transformation and the profound impact it has made on their operations. Mark Walston, a veteran communications professional with a 20-year history of researching and reporting on higher education, serves as moderator.
This webinar is sponsored by Laserfiche and hosted by The Chronicle of Higher Education. All content presented is provided by Dr. Kyncl and Ms. Ary. Reserve your seat here.
