Volume 3

Dear Colleagues,
Recently, I joined President Hatch, Provost Kersh, and the Steering Committee, as we shared our continued commitment to Workday. The resulting video project, included below, provides information about how the system will benefit the University community. These enhancements will be on display at a mobile Workday lab and a series of Engagement Sessions.


As the University approaches the one-year countdown to implementation, a new video features perspectives from academic and administrative leaders. Together, they describe how Workday supports higher education, and look to the ways it will further Wake Forest’s core mission. Watch the video »

Monday, July 24, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Davis Field, Outside Z. Smith Reynolds Library
The Workday Team is collaborating with the Office of Alumni Engagement to bring campus an early look at the new system on the Streakin’ Deacon. Join us to explore Workday’s features, ask questions, share ideas, and enter to win prizes.


The first of the following three rounds of Engagement Sessions began this month to demonstrate key processes that have been configured:

  • June 19-20: The Workday Project Team reviewed the processes to ensure they are refined for campus.
  • July 10-13: Finance and Administration colleagues will gain insights into managing the processes.
  • July-September: Campus users, identified to represent you, will see the processes with which they will directly interact.
