The Enterprise Project is a business transformation that will improve the Ohio State experience and advance operational excellence through Workday and other modern, effective services and technology. The benefits for faculty are rooted in creating a simplified and transparent work environment.

The Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) serves as the voice of faculty throughout the Enterprise Project, ensuring the academy’s needs are heard and addressed. The committee is a sounding board for potential changes in business processes and technology systems, and provides valuable input with a faculty lens.

Benefits for Faculty

Through modern systems and more efficient processes, the Enterprise Project will help you focus your work day on what matters most to you. For faculty, that means implementing modern business processes and systems to advance your teaching, research and patient care missions.


Ohio State is implementing Workday for the university and Wexner Medical Center’s financial, human resources, payroll and student information systems. 


The Enterprise Project will change the way the university does business, with the goal of creating more transparent and efficient processes for faculty, staff and students.


Workday provides more frequent system upgrades, meaning your information and processes will always be current and accessible at anytime on any device.
