5/10/17 – Dynamic Campus Helps Pfeiffer University Transform its Institution
Seven-year managed IT services partnership empowers CIO and university leaders to achieve short- and long-term goals
With a bold vision to digitally transform their 132-year-old institution, Pfeiffer University signed a seven-year managed IT services agreement with Dynamic Campus to provide the necessary technical skills, scale and agility needed to achieve the university’s immediate operational needs and long-term strategic goals.
Pfeiffer, a United Methodist-affiliated private university serving more than 1,600 students across three locations in North Carolina and online, experienced immediate improvement after partnering with Austin-based Dynamic Campus, which offers a complete portfolio of support services that address the acute and changing needs of today’s colleges and universities.
Under the agreement, Dynamic Campus provides an Expert Services IT team on site to support Dr. Ken Russell, Pfeiffer’s vice president of Digital Transformation and Chief Information Officer. “With Dynamic Campus as part of my professional IT staff, I’m able to be much more strategic. Instead of fighting fires, I can focus on helping Pfeiffer transform using digital assets and technology,” he said.
“Pfeiffer has access to Dynamic Campus’ deep bench of on-demand higher education IT experts to leverage when additional scope, scale or skill is required to close any IT gaps,” said Michael Glubke, Dynamic Campus’ president and CEO. “Whether we’re migrating the campus technology support team to a new technology center in the middle of the student union or helping to bring next-generation learning environments to life on Pfeiffer’s new Charlotte campus, Dynamic Campus is helping Pfeiffer University position itself for success in today’s rapidly-evolving higher education environment.”
“Having a managed service relationship like we have with the Dynamic Campus is perfect because I can tap into a reservoir of really, really deep talent who are schooled and ready to work on the latest and greatest technologies,” said Russell. “I can call the folks at Dynamic Campus at 11 o’clock at night and they’re right there. There’s no 9:00 to 5:00 with Dynamic Campus. We are partners in every sense of the word, and that’s why it works.”
