Core Enterprise Systems
Higher Education is more than just classrooms. Long before students arrive, they must be recruited, admitted, and registered for classes. Financial aid, annual bills, and payroll need to be processed, endowments need to be managed, and gifts need to be accepted to keep the university operating.
Core Enterprise Systems manages the systems that make Drexel work behind the scenes. Kathryn Matuch is Associate Vice President for CES. This group is charged with the maintenance, enhancement, integrity, and security of all centralized, mission critical business applications required to manage the University's assets including finance, human resources, and students. The group must work closely with the owners of the various information systems to provide required support as well as extend and enhance functionality.
The role of the AVP is to provide supervision, management and technical expertise in order to create an environment where transactions can be easily and efficiently processed with resultant management and decision support information provided for departmental and senior University officers. The AVP is also responsible to ensure that cross system integration processes are in place and that technical problems associated with applications are quickly resolved.
