As you may recall, The Nest, our new information portal, was released in the spring semester with a strong focus on addressing the immediate needs of our students. We are pleased that the pilot launch of The Nest was met with a great response from our students and we continue to make enhancements to the portal to make it a more useful and convenient tool than MySJU.
In the current phase of The Nest project, we have widened our focus to deliver a content rich portal to our faculty and staff. We have been working with campus constituents to gather feedback to ensure we capture the varied needs of SJU employees.
We are pleased to announce two new features are now available that have been developed as a result of the feedback we received:
Campus Communications: The Campus Communications portlet serves as a central location for information sharing and dialogue on current SJU issues. In this section, you will find our Town Hall message board as well as direct links to Shared Governance, RCM and Middle States sites.
Documents and Policies: The new Document Repository has been designed as a way to store all of the documents and forms that SJU employees regularly use in one convenient, secure location, organized by department. You will no longer need to scour the web in order to find frequently used forms, policies, or other documents. From this section, you can view or download needed forms directly to your computer.
As we get closer to retiring MySJU at the end of the Fall 2014 semester, we will continue to provide updates on the new features and improvements made to The Nest. If you haven’t done so yet, please log into The Nest at nest.sju.edu and test-drive our new portal. As always, we welcome and encourage your feedback.
If you have any questions about The Nest, please contact the TSC.
