We are LEAPForward, part of Administrative Technologies at Illinois State University. Sponsored by the Vice Presidents and with the support of President Bowman, the LEAPForward project is an effort to modernize the design of our administrative systems.
The team is led by Matthew Helm, the Executive Director of LEAPForward. Matthew joined Illinois State in 2009. “I’m excited to be a part of the LEAPForward project because the initiative offers the chance to redefine how the University will interact with students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni for years to come.”
Each week we plan to spotlight a member of the LEAPForward staff so that you can learn more about our department. Over time, many members of the LEAPForward team will contribute their thoughts and overall progress to this blog.
We are blogging to share information about LEAP, answer any questions, and provide an inside perspective on the initiative. The LEAP project is highly complex, and we understand that it can be very technical at times. The goal of this blog is to keep everything as simple as possible. With this in mind, we encourage you to ask us any questions or explain any processes that may be confusing to you.
We want everyone to be involved in this initiative. If you have any feedback or comments, good or bad, please do not hesitate to contact us!
