This project will renovate space in Nebraska Hall to bring together teams from the University of Nebraska's Information Technology Services, Student Information Systems (NeSIS), Business Information System (NeBIS) and Enterprise Data Solutions. These teams support critical functions across the University, such as student enrollment, financial aid, academic advising, payroll and accounting.
Currently, these teams are in multiple places spread across various buildings, including off-campus leased space. To become more efficient and cost effective, Dr. Susan Fritz charged representatives from these service areas to develop a facilities plan that would enable the teams to co-locate to improve the operations and reporting capacity of the University of Nebraska system. Research indicates a shared-spaced, open concept approach can help the success of these areas.
Organizations as diverse as UNL Husker Hub, the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Hudl have realized gains in using a similar open-concept space. This project will allow these teams to be united under one umbrella which should provide greater efficiencies and collaboration.
This project continues to move forward. Demolition in Nebraska Hall is complete, and construction is underway with a completion date scheduled for late December. Final finishes and furniture/technology installation is scheduled for January with a move-in for early February. Please note that all progress and seating arrangements are dependent on ITS and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln COVID-19 guidelines.
