In a bid to better connect with existing students on a more personal level, while also expanding its appeal to potential future students, Coppin State University has leveraged software partner Anthology’s suite of Microsoft products to great effect. In addition, the program has enabled Coppin to further its mission of providing educational opportunities while promoting lifelong learning in a more accessible way.
Situated in Baltimore, Maryland, Coppin State University is a Historically Black Institution in a dynamic urban setting. Coppin serves differently prepared students from a variety of cultural and racial backgrounds, with an age range from 17 to 65 and older.
Coppin embarked on an initiative alongside its partner Anthology (an independent software vendor specializing in higher education) to improve the student experience across the university. Coppin’s IT and Academic Affairs departments has a unique and decades-long history of cross-collaboration and synergy using Microsoft technology. Expanding on that relationship, Coppin’s College of Business was the first academic unit to leverage Anthology’s suite of Microsoft-based solutions to expand its focus from academic preparation to ongoing career planning and lifelong learning.
