Workday and Fort Hays State University

Fort Hays State University, founded in 1902 and located in Hays, Kansas, is the leading forward-thinking entrepreneurial university of the Midwest. The university has 9,000 employees, 15,000 students, and offers certificate and degree programs at the associate, bachelor, and master levels, as well as a Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree.

The student’s records feature in Workday allows us greater visibility throughout the application process. I can see the applications attached to each student. We have never had an automated way for tracking the student during  the admissions process. This is huge and super beneficial in Workday.

  • Having to send one-off emails to every student
  • Increased accountability by disseminating information across the university
  • Direct access to information that leads to better decisions at the right time
  • Standardized engagement plans in Workday to use as the communication device with students
