UNO staff members named Workday facilitators
As the University of New Orleans, Louisiana Tech University, and Southeastern Louisiana University prepare for the transition to Workday, the three systems have been coordinating a massive restructuring of business and operating procedures. The collaborative effort demands dedicated oversight, and the University of Louisiana System has named facilitators at each university to champion the integration of crucial component systems.
Carol Lunn, assistant vice president for research and economic development, and David Armstrong, payroll manager, were named the system-wide facilitators for the grants and payroll components of Workday.
Lunn, Armstrong, and their staffs are working with their counterparts at Louisiana Tech and Southeastern to ensure Workday supports business procedures vital to all three universities. They host regular meetings with their respective teams and phone calls with the Workday consultant, facilitating conversation and advocating for the groups' priorities.
In May, Lunn and the UNO Office of Research will host a system-wide demonstration of Workday's grant administration and management functionality, providing documentation to support user training at all three universities.

Office of Research restructures staff members into service teams
The University of New Orleans's transition to Workday has prompted the Office of Research to restructure our pre-award and post-award staff members into teams managing specific academic and non-academic units. This new method of serving the scholars and researchers at the University of New Orleans should streamline communications about grants, contracts, and sponsored programs throughout the application and award process.
The Office of Research transitioned to the below team structure:
- Rebecca Drake serves the College of Science.
- Kendy Martinez serves all other academic and non-academic units.
- Burt Neal manages all sub-awards and internal award programs.
- Jesse Sherrell serves the College of Business Administration and the College of Liberal Arts, Education, and Human Development.
- Bing Leng serves the College of Science except the Department of Computer Science.
- Charles Chaisson serves the College of Engineering; the Department of Computer Science; and all other non-academic units.
