JumpForward for Athletes   

With the implementation of the Prospect Student Athlete module, most paper-based processes used by Athletics for recruiting of student athletes was shifted to an online solution with interactive capabilities (text, email, electronic form submissions on a web-based or mobile environment). The software will enable the University to reduce the complications and miscommunications that come from using multiple vendors and streamline on campus communications and operations.

ITS implemented electronic key cards in Housing. ​The solution is integrated with the existing network infrastructure, housing systems, student information system, and ID card (Osprey Card) system.
