Chicago, Illinois—September 22, 2021. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that Jackson State University (JSU) has selected the Ex Libris campusM mobile app and web portal to replace the university's Ellucian system.
campusM will help JSU deliver critical communications and keep students informed of campus news and events in a timely manner. In addition, through the campusM no-code App Manager, the university administration will be able to remind students to carry out various tasks, such as registering, enrolling in classes, and checking grades.
Alonda Thomas, associate vice president for marketing and communications at Jackson State University, commented, "We are excited to partner with Ex Libris in our effort to create a vibrant and valuable mobile JSU environment for our prospective students, current students, and alumni. The Ex Libris campusM platform will enable our students to access university services, applications, and information at the click of a tile on their mobile devices. Additionally, the administration will be able to send personalized messages in real time through push notifications."
"It was exciting to see Jackson State students get involved in campusM from the outset by forming a committee to choose a name for their new campus app," said Ed Jamieson, Ex Libris vice president of research and student solutions sales. "We are thrilled that JSU has selected campusM to simplify campus communications, enhance university messaging, and provide students and faculty members with new opportunities to connect and learn."
