Major Projects

Here are some of the major projects that ITS is currently working on:

eTranscripts Implementation

The Office of Student Records is implementing eTranscripts, which will provide a secure and timely method of sending official academic transcripts in electronic format. Once implemented, current and former students will be able to have a PDF of their official Drake transcript delivered to other institutions or themselves.

Trans Inclusion - Preferred Name Identification

In partnership with the Office of the Provost and the Dean of Students, ITS is updating Drake systems to allow students to indicate a preferred name consistent with their preferred gender. This will let students use preferred names on residence hall and class rosters, ID cards, and email addresses.

Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) Implementation

To improve communication with prospective students, ITS is working with the Office of Admission to implement the CRM system, Slate. This tool will help admission counselors better communicate with prospective students and their families.
