ERP - CCC Chooses Ellucian Colleague

 In December 2010, Cumberland County College entered into an agreement with Ellucian, Inc. for the purchase of Colleague, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system of software with training and consulting services. The college’s Title III Strengthening Institutions grant provides part of the funding for the new system. Ten new servers and other hardware were purchased and installed to support Colleague.

Project Mission
The mission of the Ellucian Colleague Project is to move the college to a highly integrated and effective information system that supports education, provides accuracy and ease of use, and is consistent with the college’s mission, vision, and the strategic plan.

Project Scope
To provide technology that supports all students and employees with appropriate databases, information and analytic functions. The Colleague implementation project is the orderly and timely conversion of Cumberland County College’s entire administrative and student information system. To the extent possible and as appropriate, processes currently performed inefficiently or manually will be automated, improved and integrated into Colleague. The Colleague Implementation Executive Committee and its various work teams will use this implementation plan and related reference materials provided by Datatel to guide the college through the implementation process.

Project Goals & Objectives

The project implementation goals are to:


Improve services to internal and external constituents. Provide students, faculty, and staff with direct access to accurate, reliable, and timely information. Investigate and improve key processes affected by the Datatel project.. Meet state and federal reporting requirements. Enhance decision-making and planning capabilities.
