The goal of the NGSIS (Next Generation Student Information Services) Program is to create and deploy technological solutions that help students fully engage in rewarding learning experiences and achieve academic and personal success, and that help faculty and staff to provide a rich and supportive educational environment.
Through targeted investment in information technology, over the past 11 years, NGSIS has introduced a wide variety of new services for students and staff, providing real-time information about all aspects of the student experience. As a result, NGSIS is now actively supporting over 25 individual student and administrative applications in addition to the current core Student Information System (SIS)/ROSI system. Included in this list are some of the most successful NGSIS services for students, faculty, and staff, such as ACORN, Degree Explorer, and more recently, Timetable Builder, Award Explorer, the Course Information System and Accommodated Testing Services (ATS).
With a base of successful applications now in place, there continues to be a multitude of opportunities to distribute, integrate, and further leverage solutions and associated underlying information for U of T.
