In the fall of 2016, we launched Cornerstone, a multi-year strategic initiative to transform the administrative and student information systems and processes for Rutgers University. Since then, we have taken numerous measures to lay the groundwork to modernize, unify, and simplify operations and technology for finance and accounting, human resources, payroll, procurement, expense management, travel, and student experience. This pivotal effort will guide our work to standardize practices, improve data analytics and reporting, align services and deliverables with the university community’s needs, and support collaboration across all campuses.
