Report for Educational Institutions
EDUCATION PRO BONO TELECOMMUNICATIONS
ASSESSMENT AND REPORT APPLICATION
Application Deadline: September 30, 2022
Like buildings on campus, students, faculty and staff use an institution’s communication resources in a variety of ways for teaching, learning and services. From telephone service to Internet access, on campus or online, telecommunications infrastructure is often created in portions over time resulting in varying usability, useful life, efficiency, and capability to meet the needs of education missions and operations.
Campuses rely on expensive essential communication systems but evaluating, upgrading or changing systems to improve service and efficiency is often avoided due to expense and the fear of interrupting campus operations. Students and faculty must access academic resources anytime from anywhere 24/7/365. Online classes, remote access and work from home are standard methods of providing synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
Campus Consortium and EdTech company Prelude Solutions partnered to offer a no cost Telecommunications Assessment and Report to provide educational institutions with savings, economy of scale, security and enhancements from existing investments. Prelude will negotiate savings on the institution’s behalf and share a portion of savings, all other advising and strategic services are provided at no cost.
