Dynamic Campus, the largest vendor-neutral provider of technology outsourcing and managed services support for higher education institutions in the U.S., announced a multi-year IT outsourcing partnership with Franciscan University of Steubenville, a private, Catholic liberal arts university of more than 2,500 students in Steubenville, Ohio.
“Our Rebuild My Church Strategic Plan requires that we leverage new technologies to continue responding to our calling to educate and evangelize joyful disciples of Christ,” said Father Dave Pivonka, TOR, president of Franciscan University.
“Dynamic Campus will expand and enhance the capabilities of our excellent IT staff. We view this new partnership with Dynamic Campus as a key investment to ensure we have the tools, technologies, and support we need now and for future initiatives,” Father Pivonka said. We feel blessed to partner with a company that not only has the technical expertise we need but also supports Franciscan’s mission.”
Following Dynamic Campus’s proven IT outsourcing model, Franciscan’s existing IT team has joined Dynamic Campus and continues to serve the Franciscan University communities. This on-campus team is supported by more than 225 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.
This Dynamic DualTrack Approach™ ensures the urgent, tactical support needs of Franciscan’s campus stakeholders are proactively met on a daily basis, while the university’s leadership team gets the functional and strategic support needed to position Franciscan to thrive in the new era of higher education.
“The pace of change in higher education is far greater than any small, private institution can match in a cost-effective manner,” said Mike Glubke, CEO and co-founder of Dynamic Campus. “By partnering with Dynamic Campus, Franciscan University instantly gains the technology skills, scalability and support of a large public university while ensuring IT budget predictability. Our technical and functional experts are there when Franciscan needs them and gone when they don’t, all for a fixed expense Franciscan’s leadership can depend on.”
