Chicago, August 6, 2020: Campus Consortium, a global non-profit education association, announced today that it has awarded $263,000 in Technology Grants for Single Sign-On, Cloud-based Cybersecurity & Identity and Access Management Solutions to Faith-based Collages. Awarded institutions include LeMoyne-Owen College and Calumet College of Saint Joseph. The Grant was designed in collaboration with and supported by QuickLaunch™.
“We aimed at having a scalable solution that can provide a seamless, secure login experience to our users,” said Charles G. Elliott, Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer of LeMoyne-Owen College. “The Grants offered us the opportunity to have an identity and access management solution that will help us enhance user experience by creating a secure adaptive learning environment, providing students, staff and faculty with remote access to institutional resources and retooling the current environment. This solution will also help us automate our entire new student and staff onboarding processes, especially as we are working remotely.”
“We recognize that our schools need help adapting to a new way of doing business,” said Anjli Jain, Founder and Chairman of the Campus Consortium. “Our cybersecurity grant is designed to help schools move mission critical, premise-dependent services quickly and securely to a cloud-based environment. For example, these institutions can now onboard new users virtually and securely in the cloud. The grants awarded also give students, faculty and staff one-stop access to all campus services with enhanced security features like multi-factor authentication so that their data can be protected from wherever they are studying or working.”
