Message from CEO

As I prepare for attendance at my third AACC conference since joining CampusWorks, I am reflecting on the changes in higher education and within CampusWorks in the last couple of years. The completion agenda, once thought to be a great idea without a plan, is truly impacting the ability of community college students to achieve their dreams. Yes, we have much work to do, but college communities have rallied to put in place the services, the support and the academic programs to make student dreams a reality.

 

CampusWorks has aligned its mission with a broader focus on higher education. Our mission is to improve society by making higher education accessible to everyone. We do this by helping our clients transform their organizations, leverage their resources, or step up their results. Oftentimes an educated, outside perspective is just the push an institution needs to take a courageous leap toward real change.

 

We have spent the last two years ensuring that we could deliver to the high expectations of our clients and the growing demands of students. In response to these needs we have expanded our solutions to include accreditation & compliance, planning & assessment, business process review, and optimization services.  Our leadership and mentoring practice, as well as project management and implementation services continue to remain popular.

 

We thank you for your confidence in us. We are delighted to partner with you to change our world one educated mind at a time.

Student Success Assessment

On the path to student success there are so many components that can and should be integrated to ensure that all college resources are aligned to meet the learner objective. Technology can inhibit the smooth flow of services or enhance their delivery. CampusWorks Student Success Assessment is a look into how your institution’s processes and technology are positioned to support your students.

Real Results

“CampusWorks could put out the fires in hell…”
That’s what one client chancellor said after partnering with CampusWorks for 18 months. This large, multi-campus institution was faced with a neglected infrastructure, ineffective administrative system and no technology plan. Our partnership has resulted in an approved, multi-year technology plan that received glowing comments from the accrediting board, a stable infrastructure, and a conversion to a refreshed ERP system for half the budgeted cost—a $5M savings.

A real, unsolicited note from a thankful client
“I have been extremely impressed with your team of resources.  Jerry Smith has incredible credentials and such broad experience.  Jerry is a blessing to work with.  Teri Weston and Sherree Hyde, two professionals with so much kindness and patience.  They listen to prideful people discuss their processes and with a smile simply document what they hear.  Amazing!  Last, Bret Moeller is the most recent resource to help us.  Bret is a highly technical network/infrastructure resource.  Bret came in and immediately began helping by scanning our servers for vulnerabilities and now is going to help us complete our backup solution.  Bret works quietly and discreetly...  I am keenly aware of the challenges you face in identifying the right people who know their role as a consultant. Your team is a strong group of professionals.”

Kudos from Massachusetts
In a report on the Massachusetts State University and Community College IT Collaboration and Efficiency Project, Berry Dunn, northern New England's largest independent CPA and consulting firm, sited Middlesex and Bunker Hill community colleges’ investment in CampusWorks CIO services as a strength. The report was commissioned by the governor to identify strengths and weaknesses in technology across the higher education system and to identify ways to optimize resources through shared services.
