Whereas the University of Hawaii at Manoa requires an effective and efficient student information system that allows for data entry, retrieval, and analysis for day-to-day operations and support of critical decision- making,
Whereas Banner users include the Chancellor, deans, directors, department chairs, researchers, institutional analysts, faculty, clerical staff, and student assistants,
Whereas the Manoa Faculty Senate Committee on Student Affairs found that Banner lacks an adequate user interface and that Datamart has no interface at all,
Be it resolved, therefore, that the Manoa Faculty Senate calls for the administration to provide a usable interface to the Banner system by July 1, 2004. The usability must be certified by a committee of three faculty systems experts appointed by the Manoa Faculty Senate and by three end users appointed by the Manoa Chancellor.
