There are more than 3,000 four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. About 90% of them see fewer than 70% of students graduate within six years. Clearly, student retention is a big goal for provosts and other institutional leaders. Higher Education is seeking ways to engage students to not only keep them rooted to the campus community but also ensure they graduate. Additionally, as campuses expand within their own footprint or to new locations, they look to modernize and future-proof infrastructure.
Institutions of higher education also provide an easy target for cybercrime. The FTC reports that college students are three times more likely to lose money from fraud than older adults. Academic research is also a target for espionage.
