CAMPUS CONSORTIUM GRANT PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Design Partner In-kind Grant: Student Information System/ ERP (SIS/ERP) Campus Consortium is offering an in-kind grant with its education technology partner Unifyed. Unifyed, in collaboration with Columbia University, is developing a next generation Student Information System (SIS) to address the limitations of legacy systems and lower the cost of SIS ownership. The goal is to create a progressive and adaptive solution that provides a superior student experience and empowers faculty and staff. The intent is to improve usability and minimize IT support. This secure, cloud based Software as a Service (SaaS) system will be adaptable so institutions only pay for what they need and effortlessly managed. Unifyed is currently seeking design partners to participate during the development phase. The advantage of early adopter design partners are:
- Input and influence on the design of the system.
- Underwriting and In-kind grant from Campus Consortium to lower cost.
- Incentives from Unifyed for implementation and support.
Please note: Campus Consortium In-kind grants are offered only with our specific EdTech vendor/partners. There is no cash award instead we provide underwriting funds that are distributed to the chosen partner on your institution’s behalf. Additionally most Campus Consortium In-kind grants do not eliminate the entire cost of the solution but they significantly reduce the cost of software and services. Most Campus Consortium In-kind grants require financial contribution from the awarded institution as a shared cost model to pay for the total cost of ownership of the selected solution.
