Youberg named UNM Project Link coordinator

Fred Youberg has been named LINK Coordinating Team Lead effective May 1, 2003, UNM President F. Chris Garcia announced.

In his new position, Youberg will provide oversight and coordination of the implementation of Project LINK, previously referred to as the Electronic Management Information Systems (EMIS) Project.

Project LINK (Linking Information Networks and Knowledge) is UNM’s multi-year effort to replace its existing administrative legacy systems with new, state-of-the-art, web-based applications.

When complete, the project will have replaced and or integrated all the following systems:

—Finance (Accounting, Purchasing and Accounts Payable, Budgeting, Capital Asset Management, Non-students Accounts Receivable, Workflow and Reporting.

—Student and Financial Aid (Recruitment, Admissions, Registration, Financial Aid, Advisement, Scheduling, Grading, Housing and Electronic Course Management).

—Human Resources/Payroll (Employment, Faculty Contracts, Employee Records, Compensation, Benefits, Time/Leave Reporting, Payroll, Training).

—Advancement (Alumni Relations and Development).

“It’s a real honor to have been asked by the Executive Cabinet to take on this responsibility,” Youberg said. “I’m sure there will be days when the obstacles look insurmountable, but I have to remember that we have pulled together the best and the brightest from all across the campus and its branches to help make this project a success. One thing’s for sure: When we succeed, it will be because we pulled together and not because of the efforts of any one person.”

Youberg has been with UNM for 25 years with a variety of responsibilities. In 1997, he was asked to lead the University’s EMIS Project and to help introduce it to the UNM community.

In his new position, Youberg will serve as the single point of contact for the overall administrative responsibility and accountability for the Project LINK Coordinating Team interacting with other project administrators, managers and the University’s Executive Cabinet.
