Grant Provides Student Engagement Mobile App & Cloud-based Cybersecurity Solutions

Chicago, May 28, 2020: Campus Consortium, a global non-profit education association, announced today that it has awarded $ 1,148,950 in Technology Grants for cloud-based cybersecurity solutions to Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Awarded institutions includes Tougaloo College, Grambling State University, Talladega College, Cheyney University of Pennsylvania, Morehouse College & Alabama State University. The Grant was designed in collaboration with and supported by QuickLaunch™ and Unifyed™ .

“We strive at improving institutional processes and procedures to boost our operational efficiency,” said Kizzy Morris, Provost and Chief Academic Officer of Cheyney University of Pennsylvania. “The Grants offered us the opportunity and resources to provide an all-in-one solution with one-click, secure access to all of our applications; reduce the security risks associated with our users’ account management using a user provisioning and deprovisioning solution that centralizes the management of our users’ identities; and automate our entire new student and staff onboarding processes, especially as we are all now at home. We received the grant on March 3, 2020, kicked off our project on April 17th and are looking at launching our new platform by July.”

We recognize that our schools need help adapting to a new way of doing business,” said Anjli Jain, Founder and Chairman of the Campus Consortium. “Our cybersecurity grant is designed to help schools move mission critical, premise-dependent services quickly and securely to a cloud-based environment. For example, these institutions can now onboard new users virtually and securely in the cloud. The grants awarded also give students, faculty and staff one-stop access to all campus services with enhanced security features like multi-factor authentication so that their data can be protected from wherever they are studying or working.”
