Update to Academic Units in Workday

OTDI’s Enterprise Business Solutions (EBS) team has made a few updates to the academic unit structure where academic appointments are maintained in Workday. The naming convention has been updated for 55 existing Academic Units, such as “Medicine, College of” to “College of Medicine” and added 53 new academic units, such as university centers and institutes.

Colleges and units may now add academic appointments as appropriate to the new academic units for their faculty in Workday. Faculty will be able to see these new academic appointments in their Workday profile as well as on Find People once the colleges and units make the changes.

This data is maintained and updated by the colleges and units as decisions are locally managed. A list of the changes will be emailed to the HR Business Partners. In addition, you will see changes to the prompts in the “OAA - Academic Appointments” report in Workday; please be mindful during your next report run. This information is also being shared through HR Now.
