Campus Consortium awards $275,000 grant to Shaw University to implement Single Sign-On and Password Manager with MFA solutions on campus

Chicago, November 19, 2019: Campus Consortium, a leading non-profit education association working with a mission to help higher education institutions throughout the globe to reduce the time, cost, and effort associated with implementing enterprise IT services, announces $275,000 grant award to Shaw University. The Campus Consortium Single Sign-On and Password Manager with MFA Grant will enable the institution to implement these solutions at their campus to assist students with the tedious task of remembering numerous logins & passwords and allow them to reset them effortlessly.

David Alexander, Chief Information Officer at Shaw University said, “The Single Sign-On and Multi-Factor Authentication Grant will enable our IT department to improve the security of our faculty, staff, and student accounts. These solutions will ensure a smoother end-user experience with a variety of information systems in use at our institution and allow our users to reset their own passwords quickly and easily.”

The implementation of Single Sign-On and Password Manager with MFA solutions with the support of the Campus Consortium Grants will act as a relief for students. These grants will offset the licensing, hosting, professional services, and support costs associated with the implementation of these solutions.

“We at Campus Consortium are glad to award this grant to Shaw University. We are sure that the implementation of these solutions will make student and faculty experience better, along with tightening security parameters”, said John Wannemacher, Executive Director of Campus Consortium.
