“We aimed at having a solution that could help us with our student support and provide timely responses to student queries,” said Charles G. Elliott, Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer of LeMoyne-Owen College. “The Grant offered us the opportunity to have an AI solution that will help us provide our students with 24×7 support and relevant responses to their frequently asked questions.
