“The material covered in LSSU's engineering program provided me a solid foundation for graduate studies. The systematic approach and communication skills needed to tackle engineering projects were taught and then practiced over and over again. In particular I appreciate the many hours spent by the faculty to develop oral presentation skills in each student. As a graduate student now, these skills have proven to be highly beneficial and, to my surprise, obviously not taught to the same extent at many other universities.”

LSSU Banner Implementation

Welcome to the LSSU Banner Project

Conversion from the University's current SCT Plus administrative software to the SunGard SCT Banner system is underway at LSSU. A steering committee has been appointed which will guide the overall implementation of Banner. Project team leaders and work teams have been selected and are meeting regularly.

Banner implementation will occur over the next 2-3 years. Implementation will be challenging and will create additional work for many individuals and offices. However, this step forward is absolutely necessary. External support of the current Plus system will end in the next few years. Students, staff, and faculty are asking for improved reporting, increased system availability, and expanded web-based administrative and academic applications. LSSU must have up-to-date technology to meet these needs. SunGard SCT consultants will provide major assistance with the implementation.

What is the mission of the Banner Project?

The primary mission of the Banner implementation project is to fulfill Lake Superior State University 's requirements for more robust administrative systems that position LSSU to take advantage of future technologies and meet changing needs. While the current system is adequate, it does not meet all functional requirements. The mission of this project is to address those requirements, as well as the following:

  • Provide a tool to allow the institution to be even more student-centered, more effective in serving the needs of the constituents
  • Give faculty, administrators, staff, students, alumni and prospective students easy and meaningful interaction with administrative systems, as well as improved access to institutional information
  • Improve collegiality through sharing information and ideas, not only between faculty and staff, but between LSSU and other institutions
  • Allow LSSU to remain competitive by having state-of-the-art technology

The project improves LSSU 's effectiveness by enabling improved institutional practices and data access, leading to improved decision making and services to constituents. The project also helps LSSU become more progressive by allowing constituent access to information anytime and anywhere, including via the Internet. The project also positions LSSU to take advantage of future technology tools to achieve its mission.

"LSSU's size is perfect. I see familiar faces every day. There is a security and comfort in that. The professors are wonderful, and there is a lot of interaction in the smaller classes. The level of attention students get is the same as at a small private college, but at a great price." [ more ]
