No, we’re not talking about an Australian bear. Kuali Student is an open-source software platform for managing student information, including grades, transcripts, tuition and more. The UW is a proud founding partner of Kuali Student and because of its impact on student information, the Office of the University Registrar is playing a significant role. Todd Mildon and Sara Gomez are on the Kuali Student Board. It’s a big project involving not just the UW, but other institutions of higher learning like UC Berkley and Florida State.
The provost and the UW’s Office of Information Management has put together an extensive website explaining the UW’s involvement in this important project. Expect to see more about Kuali over the coming year.
