University Business Magazine and Higher One Honor Six More Colleges and Universities as "Models of Efficiency"

NORWALK, CT--(Marketwire - Nov 28, 2011) - University Business magazine and Higher One are honoring six colleges and universities in the fall 2011 round of their "Models of Efficiency" program. Each honoree developed new approaches that streamline operations to deliver superior services to students and other constituents in less time and at lower cost.

"Models of Efficiency" is a national recognition program implemented by the magazine, in partnership with Higher One, to honor institutions of higher learning that meet the education business and technology challenges of today's campuses.

"We launched Models of Efficiency to call attention to institutions of higher learning that are creating solutions to some of the technology and business process challenges that can plague schools," said Tim Goral, editor-in-chief of University Business. "We identify schools that have created replicable solutions, so that other institutions can learn from them."

The magazine's latest honorees are Purdue University Calumet (Ind.); Wayne State University (Mich.); University of North Carolina, Wilmington; University of Oregon; Pueblo Community College (Colo.); and Murray State University (Ky.).

Full descriptions of honorees' projects, as well as application information for upcoming rounds, can be found at www.universitybusiness.com/modelsofefficiency.

"It's a very rewarding experience to partner with University Business in recognizing operations efficiencies on campuses across the country," said Dean Hatton, CEO of Higher One, the program's sponsor for the third consecutive year. "The creativity, tenacity, and determination demonstrated by Models of Efficiency winners are inspiring to us in the private sector as we continue to strive to streamline operations and improve services in higher education business offices elsewhere."
