Announcing the New Student Services Toolkit

The ALL-SIS Student Services Committee is pleased to announce that the new Student Services Toolkit is now available online:

The Toolkit was created due to the efforts of the 2012-2013 Student Services committee, led by Morgan Stoddard, and to the current committee.

The committee has also re-organized and added content to the Student Services website (, and to the Student Services Websites & User Guides page (

We hope the ALL-SIS community finds these resources useful in their efforts to expand or enhance services to students. Please feel free to contact the committee with any questions or comments, or to submit additional materials for the Toolkit. We plan to solicit for some specific content in the upcoming weeks.
