Laura Tilley Stagni
Laura Tilley-Stagni has been selected as the Change Management Officer for Workday Student. This is the second full-time position dedicated to the university’s transition to a new student information system.
Tilley-Stagni previously served as the Training and Change Manager for UAConnect, the current student information system for the University’s University campus. She has seven years of service on the Fayetteville campus in previous roles as an academic advisor and administrative specialist. Tilley-Stagni holds a U of A Masters in Adult and Lifelong Learning.
“I’m excited to continue working on the Workday Student implementation,” Tilley-Stagni said. “My hope is to carefully assess the needs of our campus and effectively communicate the progress of the project. Our Student Information System impacts nearly every student, faculty and staff on campus, and I want these people to feel supported and prepared as things change. “
Workday Student is a cloud-based, mobile-friendly solution that is led by a partnership between campus management and the U of A System’s Project One team. Tilley-Stagni will work closely with Project One’s organizational change management team to plan and execute readiness activities and training for the Fayetteville campus.
“I am delighted that Laura is dedicated to the Workday Student project,” said Dave Dawson, Senior Associate Vice President for Enrollment Services and Director of Workday Student. “His proven skills in training, his knowledge of the functionalities of the student information system and his understanding of user needs will greatly contribute to a successful implementation on campus.
Workday Student is expected to go live in 2024-25, with the 2025 freshman class being the first to have their full system experience in Workday Student. All schools in the U of A system will adopt Workday Student because its data-driven approach aims to help with student retention and success. Currently, the project is preparing for the “Align and Prototype” phase, which will run until summer 2022.
