Dynamic Campus, the largest vendor-neutral provider of technology managed services support for higher education institutions in the U.S., announced a multi-year partnership with Southwest Baptist University (SBU), with campuses online and in Bolivar, Springfield, Salem, and Mountain View, Missouri.
“Almost everything we do as an institution of higher education depends on information technology,” President Rick Melson, Ph.D. said. “As we plan for the future, we must adapt to changing technology, provide high quality services to our university, and expand the reach of our programs. To do that, we must make a significant investment in information technology.”
SBU’s existing IT support staff will remain in service to SBU and its mission, as before. However, the on-campus team will be supported by more than 240 dedicated higher education technology experts across the U.S., specializing in data analytics, cybersecurity, remote learning, recruiting, enrollment, retention, infrastructure, enterprise resource planning, process optimization and more.
“Dr. Melson and his leadership team understand how reliant higher education is on information technology today,” said Jody Glubke, co-CEO and co-founder of Dynamic Campus. “They know the pace of change in higher education is increasing. Stakeholder expectations are increasing. IT ecosystem complexity is increasing. But most campus IT teams can’t keep up. By partnering with Dynamic Campus, SBU will always have the exact IT skills and scale it needs to meet the needs of today’s students and stakeholders while, also ensuring its mission for generations to come.”
“When it came to selecting the right partner, values alignment was a priority for us,” said Dr. Melson. “We wanted a partnership that would help us achieve our mission and with technical expertise and a strong track record of success. We are excited about how Dynamic Campus will augment our team, help us implement new technologies, and improve the educational experiences we deliver to students.”
