The Administrative Information Systems (IT-AIS) unit provides a complete set of services to meet the university-wide needs for administrative computer applications. These services include coordination of the design, development or acquisition, and improvement of university-wide enterprise administrative computer systems applications as well as specialized and departmental systems using standard tools and processes that emphasize quality and reliability. The core systems include:
- Student Information System (SIS), which facilitates admission, financial aid, enrollment, advising, housing, and maintenance of student records.
- Financial Information System (e-Business), which facilitates management of university finances, human resources, and payroll.
- Document Imaging (OnBase), which allows for scanning, encrypting, securing, sharing and providing basic workflows across the university.
- Data Warehouse, which consolidates information from many university databases in a form that is accessible for faculty and staff to use with a variety of reporting and analysis tools.
- University Portal (MyUNIverse.uni.edu), which provides personalized access to a multitude of applications and services for students, faculty, and staff.
IT-AIS partners with university offices, including Admissions and Financial Aid, the Registrar's Office, Business Operations and Financial Reporting, Human Resources, Payroll, etc., to ensure that our systems meet UNI's business requirements. Our overall goal is to provide systems that enable smooth, seamless administrative support for the teaching, learning, and research efforts of the university.
In addition to the campus wide systems, we have a specialized systems team that administers and supports a number of very focused information systems including but not limited to the library, public safety, student health center, department of residence and numerous other areas.
IT-AIS provides centralized identity management and authentication services for the university community. This CatID authentication system provides the capability for end-users to use the same username and password across many applications that are hosted both here at the university as well as cloud based systems hosted elsewhere.
