Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
University Business magazine and Higher One Inc. are honoring eight colleges and universities in the Summer 2013 round of their “Models of Efficiency” program. “Models of Efficiency,” a national recognition program launched by the magazine in partnership with Higher One in 2010, honors institutions of higher learning that meet the education business and technology challenges of today’s campuses.
Each honoree is recognized for its efforts in streamlining operations, resulting in improved services being provided in less time, often requiring fewer staff hours, and at a lower cost.
“A high level of creative thinking is evident in the efforts put forth by this round of honorees,” said Tim Goral, senior editor of University Business. “These eight higher ed institutions stepped outside the box to achieve maximum efficiency results, and we’re pleased to honor their accomplishments.”
The Summer 2013 honorees are: American Public University System (W.Va.), which is being honored for two efforts; Carthage College (Wis.); Ivy Tech Community College (Ind.); LDS Business College (Utah); The University of Oklahoma; Royal Roads University (Canada); Texas A&M Health Science Center; and Walsh College (Mich.)
Full descriptions of the Summer 2013 honorees’ efforts, as well as application information for upcoming rounds, can be found at http://www.universitybusiness.com/moe. September 3 is the next deadline for submission.
“The eight colleges and universities being honored in the Summer 2013 round of Models of Efficiency have raised the bar in operational and business process improvement,” said Miles Lasater, president and chairman of Higher One, the program’s sponsor. “These winners have proven that no problem is too large when teams collaborate, and we are proud to support their efforts.”
