LionPATH celebrates official launch of project

February 06, 2014

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Project LionPATH — the multi-year initiative to replace Penn State’s existing student information system (ISIS) — had its official kick-off Wednesday (Feb. 5) at its new facility at 300 N. Science Park Road. The day began with remarks from Executive Vice President and Provost Nick Jones, Senior Vice President for Finance and Business David Gray and CedarCrestone Vice President John Harrison. The LionPATH executive and steering committees then had the opportunity to tour the new facility and meet the Project LionPATH team members.

“This is going to be a transformative project, which will alter the landscape of the University for the better for many, many years to come,” remarked Gray.

Jones added, “I’ve seen the groundwork and great effort that has gone into getting us to this point, and I’m supremely confident we are going to do this implementation in a manner that is not only going to be great for Penn State, but it is going to be a model to other institutions.”

A phased roll-out of the initiative is scheduled to begin in fall 2015 and will be completed in fall 2016. The new integrated system will enable Penn State to better support students, faculty and staff by improving current features, as well as allowing for additional capabilities, process improvements and enhanced efficiencies. The system software will be provided by Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, and CedarCrestone will be the University’s implementation partner.
