Dynamic Campus, the nation’s largest vendor-neutral provider of technology outsourcing support and managed services for higher education institutions, announced their multi-year partnership with Andrews University—a private, Seventh-day Adventist institution of nearly 5,000 students who study each year on its Berrien Springs, Michigan campus.
“Like the world we live in, Andrews University is in a state of continuous transformation,” said Andrea Luxton, Ph.D., President of Andrews University. “That transformation is increasingly reliant on technology to deliver the life-changing education that prepares our students to be World Changers for a changing world. We’re partnering with Dynamic Campus to provide the technology expertise we need at Andrews, no matter what the future holds.”
The existing Andrews University IT team will be supported on campus and remotely by Dynamic Campus’s more than 150 dedicated higher education IT experts deployed across the country, specializing in remote learning, cybersecurity, infrastructure, enterprise resource planning, recruiting and enrollment, financial aid, records, and more.
“These IT employees aren’t joining us, as much as we’re joining them,” said Mike Glubke, CEO and co-founder of Dynamic Campus. “Existing IT staff remain on campus, supporting the institution as they always have. But now they’re surrounded by fellow IT specialists that can be called upon any time to offer up specific skills or simply scale up to meet the institution’s needs at that moment.”
The Andrews IT team retains all tenure and longevity benefits of remaining at the institution, while also unlocking new professional development options, participating in nationwide Communities of Practice, and benefitting from Dynamic Campus’s leading employee benefits packages.
“Higher education relies on technology more than ever before, yet most institutions can’t afford to build IT teams capable of addressing every IT need that might arise,” Glubke said. “By partnering with Dynamic Campus, Andrews University gets the exact IT support they need, when they need it, and we’re gone when they don’t.”
“Dynamic Campus has shown itself to be a significant advantage for other Seventh-day Adventist institutions across the U.S., particularly during the 2020 pandemic,” said Luxton. “The fact that they can deliver these advantages under the most trying times while also upholding our Christian values will help us ensure Andrews University continues to fulfill our mission without compromise.”
