Outstanding Service Award
Continuing Education Registration
The Continuing Education Registration group project consists of Lisa Erickson, Karen Heikel, Margie Helstrom, Kris Lund, Pauline Nuhring, Susan Rauschenfels, all of Continuing Education, and Judy Kurschner of ITSS.
A critical part of Continuing Education program development for the non-traditional and professional student is the registration system. It needs to support the marketing and promotion of programs, registering people, managing money and providing needed reports. For years, Duluth Continuing Education was required to use a Twin Cities system that did not meet the needs of UMD. So, a user group was established to select and implement the software.
The selection and the implementation of the Peopleware Pro software by those who actually use the system has provided Continuing Education with an effective and efficient system. The group’s work and willingness to take the risk of changing the registration system will save Continuing Education $15,000 each year.
I take great pride in presenting the group with this Project Award.
