Change Agent Network

Welcome to the STRATUS project. Together we're building the future of Towson University’s modern business systems.

What is the Change Agent Network? 

The Change Agent Network is a collaborative group of individuals from across the University whose purpose is to share information and collect feedback with an emphasis on the end-user experience. The STRATUS Change Agent Network is made up of the Project Leadership Team, the TU Project Team, the Business Process Advisory Group, supervisors of existing PeopleSoft Financials users, and executive and administrative assistants.

What to Expect

Change Agent Network members are among the first to learn about the new STRATUS system and updated processes. Members share STRATUS knowledge with colleagues and solicit feedback to bring back to the project team. Sharing and collecting feedback will help shape the ongoing learning and communications for the STRATUS launch in July 2022.

Time Commitment

This will vary based on the project calendar, but we anticipate the average monthly time commitment will be two-three hours per month for most participants.

Member Resources

Members participate in “change education” sessions which are incorporated into the regular Change Agent Network meetings. Check back for new information and toolkit resources as they get updated throughout the project.
