The Division of Continuing Studies (DCS) continues to play a leading role, after having co-founded the University's first enterprise-class Salesforce implementation in 2018.

More specific day-to-day requirements will be decided in collaboration with DCS's lead system administrator based on the individual strengths of each person.
