With the landscape of higher education rapidly changing, it is crucial that institutions are able to compete for top faculty, staff and leadership, who are not only talented people with the right skills, but are also passionate, engaged and mission-driven.

And every one of them belongs, says Paul Schantz, director of web and technology services in the Division of Student Affairs for CSUN. “We want students to feel like CSUN is their home,” Schantz says. “And if you’re going to have any kind of relationship with somebody, you should know their name, and you should get their name right. That’s the first step in establishing trust with somebody.”

The evolution of technology and online learning is enabling institutions to expand access to education across a broader spectrum of learners, by providing learning opportunities outside the limits of time, place or distance.

Institutions looking to grow must actively empower staff to ensure that administrative services keep pace with the flood of new students. Implementing the Laserfiche content services platform significantly improved the way Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OKWU) does business, but the more important benefit has been for students, says Systems Administrator Lidija Bell.
