NORWALK, CONN. (PRWEB) March 28, 2014
University Business magazine and Higher One, Inc. are honoring eight colleges and universities in the spring 2014 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.
“Collaboration across departments is resulting in innovative ideas that are generating efficiencies in both staff time and departmental expenses,” said Tim Goral, senior editor of University Business. “These eight honorees have shown that anything can be accomplished when departments work together. We’re pleased to honor their achievements.”
The spring 2014 honorees are: Northern Arizona University, Salisbury University (Md.); Texas A&M Health Science Center; University of Colorado; University of Iowa; University of Massachusetts; University of Pittsburgh and University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
Full descriptions of the spring 2014 honorees’ efforts, as well as application information for upcoming rounds, can be found at http://www.universitybusiness.com/moe. April 15th is the next deadline for submission.
“The spring 2014 Models of Efficiency honorees have done an excellent job achieving process improvements and operational efficiencies in their higher ed institutions,” said Casey McGuane, chief operating officer of Higher One. “We are pleased to recognize their efforts alongside University Business.”
