University of Tennessee System Selects Oracle Student

The University of Tennessee (UT) System, Tennessee’s oldest and largest public higher education institution, is taking a significant step towards enhancing its students’ success by extending its use of Oracle Cloud. The UT System will be implementing Oracle Fusion Cloud Student (Oracle Student), a cutting-edge offering that aims to streamline processes and provide students with the necessary tools and support to thrive from enrollment through to graduation and beyond.

Randy Boyd, President of the University of Tennessee System, expressed his enthusiasm for the new student information system, stating that it will deliver a more consistent and intuitive student experience focused on service excellence, increased engagement, and enhanced student success outcomes. The UT System will replace its current Banner and CAMS systems with Oracle Student, known internally as “DASH” (Dynamic Administrative Systems for Higher Education) Student. This integration will work seamlessly with The UT System’s Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications for finance, HR, and supply chain, providing system-wide intelligence on a single, cloud-based platform.

With five public higher education campuses and two statewide institutes enrolling nearly 59,000 students each academic year, the UT System recognized the need for a solution that securely collects and manages student data while also utilizing that information to drive better experiences. Oracle Student empowers students to take charge of their education and achieve their goals more efficiently through features such as curriculum registry, term and non-term financial aid packaging, multi-year scenario course planning, and real-time insights.

Administrators within the UT System anticipate a simplified, holistic view across all data sources, enabling faster and more accurate decision-making to propel student success. The deployment of Oracle Student across each of its institutions is expected to garner attention from the higher education community, as Oracle has a long history of supporting complex institutions and systems.

Vivian Wong, Group Vice President of Higher Education Development at Oracle, expressed excitement about the partnership with UT, emphasizing that Oracle Student has been designed to support the unique needs of systems in agile and dynamic ways. The collaboration between Oracle and UT is set to shape the future of higher education.

In addition to Oracle Student, the UT System is implementing Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM), and Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain Management (SCM). These solutions will provide real-time visibility into business processes, increase efficiency, improve reporting, and enhance the employee experience.

Built on the security, scalability, and performance of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and shaped by 30 years of higher education expertise, Oracle Student is poised to meet the needs of the next generation of students.

The University of Tennessee System, with campuses in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Martin, Memphis, and Pulaski, manages Oak Ridge National Laboratory through its UT-Battelle partnership. With approximately 59,000 students statewide and over 445,000 alumni worldwide, the UT System plays a vital role in higher education.

Oracle, a leading provider of integrated suites of applications and secure, autonomous infrastructure in the Oracle Cloud, continues to innovate and support organizations across various industries, including higher education.

The University of Tennessee System’s decision to extend its use of Oracle Cloud demonstrates its commitment to providing an exceptional educational experience for its students. By leveraging Oracle’s advanced technologies, the UT System is well-positioned to drive student success and shape the future of higher education.
