Unit4, world leader in Student Management systems for Higher Education, announces Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC) will implement Unit4 Student Management on the Microsoft Azure Cloud further expanding Unit4’s footprint in North America.
GPRC’s goals with the Unit4 implementation are to increase student and faculty engagement, enhance student experience and improve operational effectiveness with a streamlined and mobile-enabled student management platform. Using Unit4’s Student Management and Business World On! ERP together also gives GPRC staff and faculty the ability to easily access data and information to guide decision-making in the classroom as well as in College-wide strategic initiatives.
GPRC, a post-secondary community institution in northwestern Alberta, Canada, is known for its strong student engagement, quality student experience and student-centered operations. GPRC turned to Unit4 to continue its tradition of meeting students’ needs with a user-friendly and interactive platform to engage with the College and provide staff and faculty with up-to-date tools to support student engagement.
“Our existing system is nearing the end of its lifecycle and we viewed it as an opportunity to enhance overall student experience. We’re confident that Unit4’s Student Management system can provide us a leading solution that will meet the needs of our students and faculty,” said Don Gnatiuk, President and CEO of GPRC. “We need to support the work of our staff and faculty as they achieve the College’s institutional goals and objectives now and in the future. We believe Unit4 will be integral to the College’s provision of that support.”
Unit4 Student Management will provide GPRC students with an intuitive experience across all devices, allowing them to manage their interaction such as accessing student records and submitting applications.
“We are very pleased to extend our relationship with GPRC,” said Jami Morshed, VP of Global Higher Education at Unit4. “We recently announced our Student Management Spring ’17 improvements, which includes Housing Management and Assessments and Academic Progress, tools which allow a complete view of a student’s academic standing. We’re looking forward to working with GPRC in North America where we are driving cloud adoption and digital transformation in the higher education sector.”
GPRC is a comprehensive community institution, publicly funded to provide opportunities in post-secondary education in northwestern Alberta. Established in 1966 in Grande Prairie, GPRC now includes campuses in Fairview and Grande Prairie, and learning centres in Edson, Grande Cache, Hinton and Jasper.
