UMBC Leadership, led by Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, invited members of the DocuSign community to the President's Council on April 1, 2019 to provide an update on the progress of DocuSign as a workflow tool for campus users.

DocuSign members attending represented:
  • Division of Information Technology (DoIT)
  • Division of Student Affairs (DoSA)
  • Financial Aid and Scholarships (OFAS)
  • Graduate School (GS)
  • Human Resources (HR)
These are only a few of the twenty-plus groups across campus leveraging DocuSign to assist with their everyday business in one way or another.

DoIT has incorporated many of the business systems used by the campus community into the DocuSign workflow process. Some of these include Box, ImageNow, Identity Management, PeopleSoft Student Administration, REX, and RT.

Please visit the DocuSign myUMBC group to keep up to date with the latest news and information. This website provides options to submit a request for DocuSign information/assistance, review faq's, sign into the DocuSign portal, etc.

The message from UMBC leadership was this. 
  • If you are signing something on paper ask yourself the following question.
  • Why is this document not leveraging DocuSign?

Many departments across campus have shared their success stories in hopes of encouraging others to consider DocuSign for their business processing.

I hope this information is helpful as you look for opportunities to leverage technology in your area.
