. . . a new constellation of university network services . . .
October 1, 1997 - Fall Semester, 1999
In March 1997, the University of Louisville contracted to license the PeopleSoft Student Administration and Human Resources Management software systems to replace and improve upon several obsolete systems now in use. During Project ORION, the university will implement the new system, bringing it up for full production by the beginning of the Fall Semester, 1999. Once in production, the systems will be enriched for U of L applications from Fall 1999 through 2001.
For a brief look at the Project ORION scope and goals, see the summary slideshow.
