Pasadena City College has chosen to implement Banner as its Automated Information System (AIS). Developed by software company Ellucian, Banner will help improve services to students, meet data requirements for accountability standards, and make college and student processes more efficient. Specifically, the system will assist PCC in achieving its five critical Project 90 goals, meet the PCC Educational Master Plan Mission Critical Priorities, and support California's Student Success Task Force recommendations.
"We are very excited to have signed an agreement with Ellucian to implement the Banner solution," said Dwayne Cable, PCC Vice President of Information Technology Services. "Once implemented, students will be able to access all the college's services anytime on any device. Implementing Banner will do much for moving PCC towards a highly mobile world. "
The new Banner system will help PCC ensure that financial and student records are accurate and that the college is able to provide the data required for adhering to evolving accountability standards established by federal, state, and other funding agencies. The college will also benefit from increased efficiencies to help manage the needs of a large student population.
The switch to Banner will require significant changes to the organization as PCC migrates away from the current legacy systems. Many older, cumbersome, and paper-driven processes that are in place because college systems do not interface with each other will be replaced with new, more accurate and efficient processes.
