Campus Consortium to Conduct an EdTalk on Evaluating a Next Generation Student Information System

Campus Consortium, a global nonprofit education association, in collaboration with Jacksonville University, will be hosting a live EdTalk titled “Evaluating a Next Generation Student Information System” on Wednesday, March 24, 2021.

Higher Education is finding it increasingly difficult to rely on legacy student information systems (SIS) to address the needs of a changing and diverse student population. The SIS is the system of record, authority for academic decision making and key system for facilitating the management and development of an institution’s critical data.

In this webinar, our speakers Dominic Vento, Chief Information Officer from Jacksonville University, Ted Simpson, Managing Director from Huron Consulting Group Higher Education practice and Karl Horvath, Ph.D., President from Campus Consortium, will explain about the criteria and methods to evaluate a next-generation Student Information System (SIS). The panel will discuss transitioning from outdated legacy systems to affordable, agile, customized systems. Hear about challenges, pros and cons, best practices, and answers to questions that may help your journey to find a new solution.

“COVID-19 has reinforced the need for a robust ecosystem in all aspects of student learning and engagement. The modern student information systems must evolve with the mission and vision of the institution and the needs of students. As the technology landscape changes, institutions must leverage next-gen technologies like AI, Predictive Analytics, and Micro services in SIS,” said Karl Horvath, Ph.D., President of Campus Consortium.

Who should attend: Higher education institutions seeking an upgrade or change from their exiting student information system or gathering research on options available in the market.
