Hazen and her team will the lead the division in planning and upgrading the Oracle eBusiness system (MAP), which when fully implemented, will improve the University’s reporting tools, recruitment and hiring of new employees as well as other critical business administration areas. Hazen’s leadership is a critical part of the division’s long-term goals to infuse technology, standardize business processes, and develop paperless administrative systems.
