University Business Magazine and Higher One Honor Nine Colleges

University Business Magazine and Higher One Honor Nine Colleges and
Universities as "Models of Efficiency" 
NORWALK, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 --  University Business
magazine and Higher One are honoring nine colleges and universities
in the winter 2012 round of their "Models of Efficiency" program.
"Models of Efficiency," a national recognition program launched by
the magazine in partnership with Higher One in 2010, honors
institutions of higher learning that meet the education business and
technology challenges of today's campuses. 
Each honoree is recognized for its efforts in streamlining
operations, resulting in improved services being provided in less
time, often utilizing fewer staff, and at a lower cost. Many of these
solutions also contribute to make the schools greener. 
"With each new round of winners, we've seen the ideas and solutions
reported by these higher ed institutions push the envelope a little
farther; they've gotten more inventive, more creative, and more
results driven," said Tim Goral, editor-in-chief of University
Business. "Through collaboration and teamwork, our nine winter 2012
winners have come up with solutions to some of higher ed's most
difficult technology and business process challenges." 
The winter 2012 honorees are: Baldwin Wallace University (Ohio);
Dallas County Community College District (Texas); Pepperdine
University's Graziadio School (Calif.); Northern Michigan University;
NorthWest Arkansas Community College; Polk State College (Fla.);
Southern California University of Health Sciences; Texas A&M Health
Science Center; and University of West Georgia. 
Full descriptions of the winter 2012 honorees' projects, as well as
application information for upcoming rounds, can be found at

"It's been a very rewarding experience for us in partnering with
University Business to recognize these higher ed institutions for
their operational efficiencies," said Miles Lasater, co-founder and
COO of Higher One, the program's sponsor. "The Models of Efficiency
winners continue to set the bar high for excellence, but at the same
time show that even small projects can make a big difference. These
schools inspire the private sector, as well, as we continue to strive
to streamline o
ur operations and improve our services. We're proud to
support their efforts."
