Banner is an administrative software application developed specifically for higher education institutions. It consists of six highly integrated systems: Finance, Alumni/Advancement, Student, Financial Aid, Human Resources, and General Shared Data. Though each system is contained within its own module, they all share a common database. This makes it easy to maintain records for individuals as they progress though the University life cycle: first as they apply to the University, then as they become a student, graduate, and become an alumnus.
Because of the common database, multiple departments use the information stored in Banner. Although information is shared, many users are allowed only to look up (query) specific information. Banner also has sophisticated security measures to make sure that only authorized individuals have access to specific data.
Banner Support provides both technical and functional support for Banner directly to technical personnel and functional users within each area at LU. Banner Support also maintains the database configuration, assists with adapting university processes to utilize the software to its fullest capacity, and even assists with functional tasks within system that require technical expertise.
