November 29, 2007- This Fall the Connect! National Network™ has welcomed a record number of colleges and universities. In November over twenty new institutions joined the Connect! Network, highlighted in our recent press release. In addition to expanding our network nationally, these additional partners have strengthened our regional networks in Missouri, Michigan and New Jersey.
With four new colleges – Central Christian College of the Bible, Drury University, Washington University and William Woods University- our total participation by colleges in the Show Me State is now 20. In Michigan, Ferris State University became the 13th college to join the Michigan network and in New Jersey, we welcomed both Bloomfield College and Montclair State University to our expanding east coast network.
This fall we’ve also launched Connect! in new states including North Dakota, West Virginia, Illinois, and Tennessee. In Massachusetts and Kansas, we are establishing a two-year to four-year pipeline as more community colleges in those states recognize the value of an integrated web solution to streamline admissions and the transfer process.
While these state and regional networks continue to grow, more and more students are enjoying national exposure to higher education. Good stuff!
