Our House in Order work has the goal of ensuring that each department in Student Affairs embodies excellence in its core functions. Through House in Order pilot projects, which began in spring 2018, each of our Associate Vice Provost areas is engaging in continuous improvement and building a culture of greater accountability and excellence. The House in Order pilots are:

SFS is piloting a project to develop a deep understanding of the data that is used in the transfer that SFS oversees between oracle to peoplesoft to ensure that the staff of SFS can problem solve, in a systemic way, when they face challenges in the data migration.
HPS is working to bring together and better articulate the resources, services and programs provided by HPS, including both print and web resources.
Residential Education is striving to clarify expectations and practice for case management notes, in order to facilitate clear tracking of information for student cases.
