OspreyRising Coming July 1, 2024

Countdown Expired

The University of North Florida has embarked on an exciting project aimed at upgrading and enhancing many of our core business processes at UNF.  Launching July 1, 2024, the University is actively engaged in OspreyRising, a digital transformation that will replace finance and human resource functions in the current system, Ellucian Banner, with a new cloud-based system, Workday.

Workday is aimed at enhancing functionality, usability and productivity, it will replace numerous existing systems and products. Workday will promote consistency across the University while reducing costs, risks and technology debt. Workday is key to UNF's digital transformation, and it will change the way you work!
