Linn-Benton Community College Enhances the Student Experience with Cloud-based Solution Ellucian Mobile and Ellucian Degree Works™

Published Wednesday, June 15, 2016 - Fairfax, VA

Ellucian, the leading global provider for higher education software and services, today announced that Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC) has selected the cloud-based solution Ellucian Mobile and Ellucian Degree Works™ to enhance the student experience and drive student success.

Over the last two decades, LBCC has seen enrollment increase along with the diversity of its student population, as it now serves more than 20,000 students.

LBCC’s diverse learner community requires a modern approach to student engagement. That’s why the college added Ellucian Mobile and Ellucian Degree Works to its IT stack. The addition of these two solutions will empower LBCC students to stay on track for graduation, gaining deep insight into their academic progress along the way.

“As our student demographics evolve, so must we to ensure we’re meeting their needs and setting our students up for success,” said Michael Quiner, chief information officer at Linn-Benton Community College. “Adding Ellucian Mobile and Ellucian Degree Works to our campus empowers students to focus on what really matters and enables our entire administration to support them in this crucial stage of their education.”

The college chose the cloud-enabled Ellucian Mobile platform to give students a unified experience that will provide them insight into class schedules, campus maps, directories, news, events, social media and more. After considering many different mobile options, Linn-Benton decided to become an Ellucian Mobile campus because the solution empowers students with fast and useful interactions they needed to excel.

“LBCC has long expressed a deep understanding of the role technology can play in higher education,” said Jeff Ray, president and chief executive officer at Ellucian. “With Ellucian Mobile and Ellucian Degree Works, LBCC has the right tools to help students navigate their paths in higher education and enhance their on-campus experiences.”

Linn-Benton is the primary transfer institution for Oregon State University (OSU), an existing Ellucian Degree Works customer. The two institutions also share a number of faculty members. Both faculty and administrators realized that LBCC lacked access to the curriculum planning tools that enable students to map the courses they need to graduate, so they encouraged the institution to adopt Degree Works. With Degree Works, LBCC will provide students with personalized advising and the academic support necessary to plan for and reach their goals.
