The Ellucian Impact Award celebrates higher education visionaries who are inspiring others to push the boundaries of technology and innovation. The annual award recognizes institutions using technology to overcome challenges, operate more efficiently, and offer a unique student experience.
How it works
Is your institution innovating to enhance the student and constituent experience? Has your institution made efforts to creatively improve student well-being? Has your campus undergone digital transformation or used data to better inform decision-making?
This is your chance to tell your story and be recognized for your institution’s impact.
Customers may nominate themselves or be nominated by others. The nomination window is open from November 16, 2020 through January 15, 2021.
Internal and external panels will review nominations to select the award winners. Award recipients will be publicly announced and showcased at Ellucian Live Online 2021.
The Ellucian Impact Award
Share your story and be recognized for your institution’s impact on higher education technology. Nominate your institution for the annual Ellucian Impact Award.
The Ellucian Impact Award winners receive:
Has your institution created programs or initiatives to help your most vulnerable students during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Did your initiative have a unique vision demonstrating innovation and creativity? Has your institution experienced proven success with innovative technology during the COVID-19 pandemic? Have you reimagined education or fostered a strong campus culture in a virtual environment?
Has your institution undergone a significant digital transformation effort? Have you optimized existing technology and improved integration? Have you demonstrated efficiency and business process improvement?
*Reportable metrics are imperative. Results can be quantifiable or anecdotal, but more measurable results and examples will result in higher scores.
The Ellucian Impact Award is open to all current Ellucian customers. Institutions must complete and submit the entry form no later than January 15, 2021, 5 p.m. ET. All eligible institutions are encouraged to apply.
An internal Ellucian committee will evaluate all submissions. Top entries will advance to a panel of Ellucian Customer Council members representing select Ellucian customers.
