Concur User Group Established

SMU has established a Concur User Group to serve as a knowledge-sharing channel between faculty, staff and administrators.  User groups identify ways to improve systems and serve as a source of information and feedback.  The Concur User Group’s mission is to exchange information and ideas in a collaborative forum while sharing best practices and updating policies and procedures for the use of Concur, the University’s new system for managing travel and expenses.

The group’s first meeting was held Thursday, October 27, 2016 and will meet quarterly.  The group members include:

Dana Ayres – DEA

Professor Neil Foley – Dedman College

Ann Forsyth-Smith – SMU Abroad

Professor Kenneth Hamilton – Dedman College

Jill McGinness – Cox

Professor Andrew Quicksall – Lyle

Shelly Walker-Downey – Undergraduate Admissions 

When you see these individuals around campus, please thank them for accepting this important responsibility and share any suggestions for improving the Concur system or process. If you have ideas for improving Concur at SMU, please send them to Millicent Grant at
