2018 E-live Scholarships

Scholarships for Ellucian Live 2018, April 8-11, 2018 in San Diego, CA

The PowerCampus Users Group is pleased to again announce scholarships which will cover the Ellucian Live 2018 conference registration cost for up to three attendees, each from a different institution. We are hoping that this will assist PowerCampus users to participate who have institutional budget restrictions that place Ellucian Live out of reach.

This year, we have devised specific roles for each scholarship recipient. These roles are as follows:

·         PowerCampus Visibility Coordinator- Assist PowerCampus attendees to be more visible to each other and the larger Ellucian community.

·         PowerCampus Feedback Coordinator- Assist the PowerCampus community in gathering feedback through online or paper surveys. Assist during the annual user group lunch meeting (Wednesday, April 11).

·         PowerCampus Attendee Connection- Reach out to first-time Powercampus E-Live attendees using various methods and encourage community interaction. Assist in planning meet-ups during the conference.

In order to apply for one of these scholarships, please tell us for which scholarship role you would like to apply and how you would use that role to contribute to our PowerCampus users community.  You may apply for one role or all of the roles listed. Please include an assurance that your institution would be able to cover your transportation, hotel, food costs, etc.  Each scholarship will only cover the actual conference registration fee expense.

Winners will be chosen by the Powercampus Users Group Board. Please submit your entries to Laurie Strothman (lstrothm@ringling.edu). Deadline for submission is December 1, 2017. Winners will be notified as quickly as possible in order to allow registration prior to December 15.

Recording:  PowerCampus Users Group’s Discuss – CRM with Western-20170524 1744-1.arf

We have several starter questions we plan to ask the group concerning CRM on your campus:

1. What package is everyone currently using?

2. At what point does the prospect move from the CRM to a student in Powercampus?

3. Who manages the CRM environment on your campus?

4. Is your recruitment staff included in your Admissions department?

5. Does the CRM interact with your student Portal?

6. If you have a CRM – how many staff are required to maintain it?

This will be a great discussion, don’t miss it.
