Pensacola Christian College strengthens student engagement with Ex Libris campusM Mobile App

Chicago, Illinois—April 11, 2019. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that Pensacola Christian College (PCC) in Florida has fully deployed the Ex Libris campusM cloud-based mobile platform to support student engagement and success. The campusM platform was chosen for its unique ability to bring together campus services under one umbrella and deliver the school's campus app, myPCC, to the community via smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

For today's digital-native PCC students, campus expectations are informed by daily experiences in the digital economy, where everything is on demand, convenient, personalized, and just a click away. The primary goal of myPCC is to provide dynamic, on-demand access to student resources; convey information on a variety of academic, athletic, fine arts, social, and service activities; and enable students to select and customize the desired options in their campus app. Using out-of-the-box campusM functionality, the MyPCC app employs multiple personalized profiles to offer each type of user a unique experience.

In the future, PCC hopes to extend app usage to prospective students with the goal of strengthening their engagement with the school and raising their awareness of events and opportunities when they visit the campus.

"Pensacola Christian College's integration of the campusM app has been a team effort of project coordinators, information technology programmers, graphic designers, administrators, and student leaders," commented PCC Chief Communication Officer Amy Glenn. "Many have been involved in the process. We are also thankful for the teams at campusM, who have supported us through development and integration, and those who continue to support the maintenance and enhancement phases."

"We are excited to help Pensacola Christian College and its students engage at a new level, whether it is for class schedules at the start of the semester, grades during midterms and finals, or account information when school bills are due," said Eric Hines, president of Ex Libris North America. "The college's future plans of expanding its app to encompass prospective students clearly shows strategic thinking and will provide a consistent experience throughout the college."
