Responsibilities will also include monitoring the health, usage, and compliance of ServiceNow, coordinating application and platform upgrades, load, manipulate, and maintain data between ServiceNow and other systems, and create ServiceNow reports and dashboards.

The role requires a cross-functional perspective and a high-level oversight of enhancements to existing—and new—functionality. The product manager will create product initiatives that support the overall enrollment goals of the university and move the institution forward in achieving its aspirations in the areas of lifelong learning, personalized educational experiences, and customized learning journeys.
