This partnership will bring together higher education's leading enrollment management consulting firm and the industry's leading content management system (CMS) provider.

The joint effort integrates enrollment management expertise and Web consulting services from Noel-Levitz with OmniUpdate's advanced CMS, OU Campus™, providing a seamless solution to campuses in need of Web development support.

"Research has shown that Web content is critical to engage students and their families," said Kevin Crockett, president and CEO, Noel-Levitz.
