"There is no other single thing that we will do in the next 10 years, that will most directly and significantly influence our ability to support the mission and ambition of the university - than the Georgetown 360 project."
"Technology may be the enabler but our community will be the power behind this exciting project. Georgetown is uniquely positioned with the GU360 project to raise the bar in higher education through innovation and collaboration"
In response to a Higher Education landscape which has become more mobile and connected, Georgetown is developing GU360, which will improve the University’s ability to engage its community of Students, Faculty, Alumni and Staff.
There are three key parts to this critical project:
- By fully-modernizing its existing Advancement capabilities, Georgetown is undertaking an important next phase towards achieving an integrated, university-wide, framework for Alumni engagement and Donor engagement activities. Related processes will be anchored by robust gift-processing and gift-accounting capabilities.
- Building on the modern, flexible and scalable Salesforce platform, the University is also replacing its outdated Faculty information management systems (Explore) with an easy-to-use, ‘one-stop shop’ solution that will improve related collaboration, information sharing, and research opportunities.
- In allowing for greater engagement between the Faculty, Staff and Students, the University is delivering a customized, Georgetown-branded student portal that will enrich the academic experience, while providing the level of customer service today’s higher education students demand.
The goal of Georgetown 360 is to provide full 360-degree views of each constituent across the University lifecycle spectrum: from prospective student to active enrollee; from graduate student to alumni; and between, Faculty, Researchers, Staff, and beyond.
To open this exciting and ambitious new chapter of Georgetown’s history, GU360’s Executive sponsors, Bart Moore, our VP for Advancement and Judd Nicholson, our Vice President and Chief Information Officer, officially kicked off the program at a formal University gathering on May 17, 2016.
