CampusWorks Donates $500k to Help Higher Ed Ignite Sustainable Transformation

CampusWorks, a strategic transformation partner dedicated to higher education, has launched a social responsibility program to award $500,000 in grants to support student success initiatives at colleges and universities across the country. These Sustainable Transformation Grants are intended to help institutions get “unstuck” so they can transform operations to respond to disruptive market dynamics and changing student needs.

After more than two decades serving higher education, CampusWorks understands how the business of higher education can create obstacles and inefficiencies that impact the student experience. That’s why the company is making this significant contribution to support initiatives that will help institutions improve operations, reduce costs, and position students for success.
