BIG Initiative: Meet and help us evaluate implementation partners - Alchemy

Attend a presentation by possible implementation partners.

We are meeting and evaluating three possible implementation partners, who will be a visible presence on campus during the entire ERP transition. We hope you will attend the presentations to learn more and share your feedback. The event is open to Amherst faculty, staff and students.
