These initial demonstrations will provide us with the direction Banner is going and what we as a campus, departments and staff, will need to do as we migrate current business practices; identify gaps in our knowledge about current usability functionality; and plan for the new features of Banner 8.

These one day overviews will walk staff through the different modules of each area with directed focus Banner 8 enhancements.
