"To support this plan, Project ORBIT was initiated last summer. Well-deserved congratulations to the entire finance functional and technical teams for the dedication and perseverance they displayed in meeting their project deadlines,” he added. “Our upgrade to Banner replaces a technology platform that has been used at NJIT since 1985," said David Ullman, associate provost for Information Services and Technology. “In making this transition, NJIT joins well over 1,100 institutions across the US and around the world that manage higher education operations and processes with Banner.”  “We look forward to using Banner to improve the productivity of our recruiting, admissions and enrollment operations,” said Kathy Kelly, associate vice president for Enrollment Services. Project ORBIT will be fully implemented over the next 18 months.
