Banner 9

With Banner 9 Admin now in Production, William & Mary Information Technology's focus is on  configuring Banner 9 Self-Service apps that will replace current functionality and deliver new functionality to the W&M community.  While there is no retirement date set for Banner 8 Self-Service, W&M IT is actively working with functional offices that have an interest in testing and going live with Banner 9 Self-Service apps.

Building Projects

W&M Information Technology is currently involved in the construction/renovation projects of the following buildings:

  • Dillard Sceneshop 
  • Integrated Science Center (Phase 4)
  • Kimball Theatre
  • Performing Arts Quarter
  • Blow IT Data Center
  • Busch Field Team Facility
DocuSign

Interest in DocuSign, an electronic signature solution, has been growing since it was introduced on campus in 2017. In simple use cases, users can electronically sign and route documents. More complex implementations involve automatically populating documents with data from Banner, posting information to Banner and/or retaining a copy of the document using Banner Document Management. W&M IT is partnering with campus offices to reduce manual data entry and implement more efficient approval routing using DocuSign.

William & Mary is adopting the wireless network service eduroam to replace W-M_Wireless_Encrypted in all campus buildings. Eduroam is an encrypted wireless network that provides Internet service for academic communities at participating institutions. All residence halls were connected to eduroam as of October 2019, and all academic buildings were transitioned on January 6th, 2020. Any faculty, staff, and students who have not yet set up their digital certificate should do so at connect.wm.edu.
