LIM College's new logoLIM College is one of only 11 colleges and universities nationwide recognized by University Business magazine’s Spring 2011 “Models of Efficiency” program, which recognizes innovative approaches for streamlining higher education operations through technology or business process improvements.

“Efficient business operations translate into better experiences for students and administrators alike, and the Models of Efficiency program aims to encourage schools to prioritize service,” said Tim Goral, editor-in-chief of University Business. “LIM College stands out for developing a very effective solution to a challenging situation.”

LIM College was selected based on an application from the Office of Admissions about the establishment of Student Outreach Coordinator positions. These student workers help the Admissions team provide a high level of personalized service and information to early-stage prospective students while increasing the amount of time that Admissions Counselors are able to devote to current applicants.

In addition to LIM College, Models of Efficiency honorees include: Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne; San Diego University’s College of Extended Studies; California Polytechnic State University; Jamestown Community College; the College at Brockport: Liberty University State University of New York; Montgomery County Community College; Macomb Community College; North Carolina State University Graduate School; and Capella University.

The program is sponsored by Higher One, a company focused on helping college business offices manage operations and provide enhanced service to students. Said Dean Hatton, CEO of Higher One, “The creativity, tenacity and determination demonstrated by Models of Efficiency winners inspires us as we continue to strive to streamline operations and improve services in higher education business offices elsewhere.”

University Business is a leading publication for senior managers at colleges and university throughout the United States, reaching 46,000 leaders who manage offices such as enrollment, technology, facilities and academic affairs.
