The American Society for Engineering Education, the pre-eminent authority on the education of engineering professionals, knew that associations for other disciplines had great success with Liaison-powered Centralized Application Services (CAS). Nathan Kahl, ASEE’s managing director for communications and society advancement, thought it might be time to offer his member engineering schools the same benefits.

American College Health Association’s annual survey on student health shows that from 2010 to 2015 there was a rapid growth in illnesses that can lead to students completing a medical withdrawal. The decision to withdraw is not an easy one, as only a small fraction of schools provide 100 percent refunds for medical withdrawals.

 Gone are the precooked burgers and warmed-over chicken patties that once dotted the college dining hall landscape. 

“Today it’s all about freshness, healthy food cooked to order, and customization,” says Mike Purcell, president of CulinArt Group, which recently took over the dining options at a large public university in the northeast. “Students want to know where products come from and what’s in them.”

Just five years ago, the business office at James Madison University in Virginia was spending about $25 for every refund check it processed. Multiply that by the tens of thousands of students who received such checks each semester, including summers, and the cost quickly added up. 

Today, the school has all but eliminated paper checks in favor of BankMobile Refund Management, an electronic disbursement system that processes and disburses financial aid credit balances and other refunds. 

At Cleveland State Community College in Tennessee, all 3,500 credential-seeking students must see an academic adviser before registering for classes each semester. Until this past summer, students used paper sign-in sheets at the Advising Center, then stayed nearby until their name was called. 

The University of Arizona wanted to rethink its course site design workflows to empower faculty to teach courses the way they want to teach them.

California State University is the largest four-year public university system in the United States. With 23 campuses and eight off-campus centers, it serves over 479,000 students each year.

Like other higher education institutions, most of CSU’s renovation, alteration and construction projects are concentrated during specific times of year. With campuses spread across the state, access to qualified contractors can be difficult.

Over the past decade, the eLearning team at Seminole State College of Florida saw video organically grow to become a regular part of students’ learning experiences. But as different instructors and departments were starting to adopt the technology, there was a lack of standardization, which quickly began to create a number of new challenges when it came to recording, streaming and sharing video across campus.
