About the program:

UBC has embarked on a multi-year journey to transform its academic and administrative support processes and system environments for the entire UBC community. Following the successful completion of major renewal projects related to UBC’s Human Resources and Finance systems under the Integrated Renewal Program (IRP) in 2020, work is now underway for the next stage of IRP - to renew the Student information ecosystem, anchored by the implementation of Workday Student.  

The Integrated Renewal Program – Student (IRP Student) will leverage the industry-leading cloud enterprise solution, Workday, to replace UBC’s current core Student administration systems with a new integrated, user-friendly, mobile-enabled platform. This project has a high degree of complexity, influence, and impact as our solution is designed for the majority of constituents in the UBC community. UBC is one of the first Canadian institutions to implement Workday for this purpose.
