Technology Streamlines and Improves Recruitment--and Institutional Performance

Established in 1965, North Shore Community College (NSCC) is one of the oldest and largest of the 15 public comprehensive community colleges in Massachusetts. Operating from campuses in Lynn, Beverly and Danvers, NSCC serves more than 10,000 students each year. One of their strategic directions is to build technology media environments that create a "technological village"--a phrase used by NSCC President Dr. Wayne M. Burton--and to increase communication at all levels of the college. In 2001, NSCC implemented a robust integrated campus portal integrating e-mail, learning management system, course resource areas and administrative services. This Unified Digital Campus (UDC) built upon SunGard Higher Education Banner ERP and the Luminis Platform, provides portal capabilities, collaboration and communication tools, and a common interface. The UDC has resulted in an integrated environment that facilitates seamless interaction for learning, teaching and administration. The result has been not only a vastly improved online experience but also an opportunity for the college to redesign its business processes.
