With complexity in higher ed only increasing—due to trends including online learning and the demographic shift to nontraditional students—implementing more student-centered services has become crucial to meeting the needs of today’s learners. By creating “one stop” student services, institutions can modernize, streamline and simplify the student experience while improving efficiency and service.
Students are arriving on campus with a rapidly changing set of goals and expectations. Meeting these expectations while supporting student success across the lifecycle requires institutional transformation, bold strategies and innovative use of technology. Cloud-based systems can be essential to this transformation, but utilizing this technology effectively requires a strategic approach.
Many institutions ask their enrollment teams, advising offices, faculty and other departments to focus on student success, but these departments do not often know or understand all the unique factors that contribute to the success of their students. A more holistic view is crucial to helping students succeed.
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.

Higher education is in the midst of significant changes, including in the areas of technology infrastructure and strategy.
