Jenzabar, Inc., a leading technology innovator in higher education serving the new student, today announced that more than 50 higher education institutions across the U.S. have selected or expanded the use of Jenzabar solutions over the past year to navigate operational challenges prompted by the global pandemic and to prepare for the future. These institutions will leverage elements from the mobile-friendly Jenzabar One platform to power online learning, analytics, financial aid, student recruitment and retention, and more.
Facing unprecedented challenges brought about by the pandemic, colleges and universities have been pressured to accelerate their digital transformations and increase the use of technology across campus. When students and staff were forced off campus to a remote capacity, Jenzabar’s flexible platform enabled institutions to quickly adapt and establish effective online learning and working environments. As everyone returns to campus with new expectations for academic work and life, Jenzabar’s solutions have positioned institutions to adopt the new normal that will materialize over the coming months and years.
Some of the higher education institutions that are using modern elements of the Jenzabar One platform include Arkansas Baptist College, Carolina University, East Texas Baptist University, North Central Michigan College, Palm Beach Atlantic University, Shaw University, Southern Virginia University, Trinity School of Medicine, Unitech Training Academy, Wartburg Theological Seminary, Wilmington College, West Shore Community College, and more.
The Jenzabar One platform comprises a portfolio of sophisticated and modern higher education systems, including student, finance, and human capital systems, as well as the following additional solutions.

“I really feel like we are set up for the future with Jenzabar Recruitment,” said Dr. Joseph Liesen, Executive Director of Institutional Technology at Culver-Stockton College. “It’s amazing now how our email campaigns work so seamlessly in an automated way and give us the ability to see who has received and opened the email. I think the system was a good investment and will make our lives more organized and easier in a lot of ways. I am very glad to have some modern tools to help us recruit our students.”
“Higher education is evolving faster than it ever has before and technology is playing a critical role at the center of how people work, learn, and live – both on campus and beyond,” said Ling Chai Maginn, President and CEO of Jenzabar. “Jenzabar’s powerful suite of tools gives institutions the ability to quickly and cost-effectively modernize their infrastructure and stay ahead of evolving expectations.
