Press release from: Campus Consortium

Campus Consortium, a global non-profit education association, announced today that it has awarded $227,849 in Technology Grants for artificial intelligence chatbot and cloud-based identity and access management solutions to Liberal Arts Colleges. Awarded institutions include LeMoyne-Owen College and Dillard University. The Grant was designed in collaboration with and supported by Quicklaunch™, Unifyed™ and BlackBeltHelp™.

“We wanted to expand our offerings to all employees and students working or studying from home,” said Walter M. Kimbrough, President of Dillard University. “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 process.

“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.”
