Strengthening Wittenberg’s strategic posture as an institution committed to delivering best-in-class experiences, President Michael Frandsen announced that the University will partner with CampusWorks for the planned oversight and delivery of IT services effective May 1, 2021.
The partnership results from a multiphase, competitive procurement process that began in 2020. CampusWorks stood out as the ideal partner for Wittenberg due to its team's deep technical expertise, first-hand experience in campus leadership roles, and absolute commitment to student success.
"We're looking forward to having CampusWorks working for the best of Wittenberg," Frandsen commented. "They're a people-first organization, and our decision follows a diligent search that was both rigorous and inclusive. Together I'm confident we'll move Wittenberg forward."
The two will operate as strategic partners with initial efforts focused on stabilizing key leadership positions, extracting additional value from existing investments, and increasing project management capacity. Wittenberg's IT staff will officially join CampusWorks as employees, where they will continue to play integral roles in supporting the institution.
"The opportunity to build institutional capacity and reimagine the future of IT alongside Wittenberg University stakeholders is truly a privilege," said CampusWorks CEO Liz Murphy. "Our team couldn't be more excited to support you in furtherance of your educational mission."
