“Smaller. Smarter.” school seeks to significantly improve IT outcomes and fulfill the institution’s 2020 Vision strategic plan
Dynamic Campus, a leading provider of IT outsourcing and IT managed services for two- and four-year higher education institutions since 2002, announced that it has been selected by Texas Wesleyan University, an intentionally small, private higher education institution of 2,600 students in Fort Worth, Tex., to deliver comprehensive IT and strategic technology support to the university.
As part of the arrangement, Dynamic Campus has deployed both on-campus and remote IT leadership and tactical expertise to deliver the highest-quality IT support possible to Texas Wesleyan’s students, faculty, staff and leadership, ensuring that technology is applied in the service of academic quality and integrity, always putting the student first.
“Texas Wesleyan cultivates an environment where students receive the personal attention they deserve,” said Frederick G. Slabach, Texas Wesleyan’s President since 2011. “Our partnership with Dynamic Campus gives us the best of both worlds in many respects: the intimacy of a small campus experience with high-quality, dedicated faculty, combined with the technology capabilities, experience and expertise of an institution many times larger.
“We’ll be relying on Dynamic Campus to help us support students and faculty in the classroom, both on campus and in our growing online programs, ensuring that everyone has the ability to develop to their highest potential. I look forward to the positive impact Dynamic Campus will have on our university community and the impact it will have on helping us reach our 2020 Vision strategic plan goals.”
Today’s colleges and universities are increasingly reliant on technology to attract students, maximize their opportunities for success, deliver greater value and a richer experience, achieve the institution’s short- and long-term goals and much more.
Managed IT services providers like Dynamic Campus allow institutions to tap into a deep bench of nationwide IT talent with higher education experience, delivering the technology skill, scale and strategic capabilities many institutions simply can’t achieve on their own.
“We’re incredibly pleased to partner with Texas Wesleyan University and play a role in helping them meet their goals,” said Mike Glubke, Dynamic Campus president and founder. “President Slabach and his leadership team have a clear vision for how and where they want to put technology to work on behalf of their students, faculty and institution as a whole. We look forward to making Texas Wesleyan stronger, more effective, more efficient, and better equipped for the challenges of an ever-changing and increasingly technology-dependent world.”
