Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv Scheduling Question

We at Tarleton are benchmarking how other schools do their scheduling. If you could please answer the questions if you are a school that has 10,000 or more Headcount. Thanks!
(And this is not about scheduling rooms, only putting the schedule into the computer system)


1)       How many people are at your school?  34,000

2)     Is your scheduling centralized (done in one office) or decentralized (spread out on campus) or a mixture (some departments do some parts of the scheduling, but most is done in one office?)  Centralized.  We roll like term schedules forward, fall to fall, spring to spring and send the schedules out to academic units on a spreadsheet for them  to make changes and submit them to our office.

3)      If centralized, how many people do you have inputting the schedule and making changes?  One FTE, but if required, others will help out.  We use a lot of cross-training.

4)     Do you use an external program/software to help with scheduling? (i.e. Courseleaf WEN or Ad Astra or something) We use CourseLeaf for submitting changes to the course inventory, and use Astra Scheduling for classroom booking.

5)     If you use Banner, and you are decentralized or have a mixture, what do you give departments access to in Banner? SSASECT - All of it? Parts of it? Etc. We are PeopleSoft.

Any info you all can give would be helpful as we look at our own processes and try to make them more effective. Thanks.

Susan
