Utah State University
Social Work Program
“The BSW program is committed to enhancing the quality of life in Utah, the nation, and the world, through service learning, leadership development, research, and extension, and is reflective of the fundamental need to adjust social institutions to the democratic and egalitarian ideals of both the University and the Social Work profession. [They] recognize the historic importance of social welfare in re-balancing the country’s economic and social structure. The program is committed to the resolution of contemporary human social problems, such as poverty, racism, discrimination, and economic injustice. [They] seek to instill in [their] graduates a deep commitment to the profession’s traditional concerns with social justice and social welfare.” (https://chass.usu.edu/social-work/tracks/social-work)
The Utah State University Social Work Program was in search of an intuitive software platform to integrate data from their Student Information System (SIS), social work field placements, and admissions applications. They needed a very customizable solution to match their existing processes and workflows.
AllofE configured and customized the eMedley platform to meet the exact needs of the Utah State Social Work Program.
- Admission Application – Automation and tracking of program application forms and admission details.
- Decision Workflow – Tracking of application from Submitted to Provisionally Accepted, Accepted, or Declined.
- Student Documentation – Management and tracking of key student documentation such as the Student Success Plan, Acceptance Letters, and other credentials.
- Multi-Campus Environment – Student tracking by assigned campus location.
- Accolades and Incidents – Logging and documentation of accolades and incidents submitted by faculty for students.
- Leave of Absence Tracking – Tracking of student submitted leave of absence requests and details.
- Student Snapshot – Summary dashboard of a student’s admission, documentation, accolades, incidents, and leaves of absence.
- Mail Merge – Integrated mail merge for email communication with applicants and existing students.
In less than two months, the Utah State University Social Work Program had a completely customized solution implemented that matched their specific workflow and tracking needs. The expansive eMedley platform has been built to grow with their program and forward thinking vision.
“The system is awesome! It’s already way more functional than anything we’ve used in the past.”
