Miami, FL

Miami, Florida: Unifyed, a pioneer in higher education software, announced today that Wilkes University, a Pennsylvania Institution, has switched from LookingGlass to Unifyed Engage – Student Portal & Mobile App for a reformed student experience.

Wilkes University sought to streamline the student experience through a comprehensive platform that allows the institution to communicate with the on-premises and virtual students alongside bringing every relevant information to a single platform. Unifyed Engage, student portal & mobile app, allows Wilkes University to provide Academic and financial information, personalized content based on roles, and modes to connect with peers and faculty alongside providing a communication pathway. Most importantly, the institution required a platform that offered seamless third-party integrations with Banner® (SIS/ERP) and D2L® (LMS).

Unifyed Engage, a student engagement portal, is a modern interface curated to deliver a personalized experience throughout students’ academic lifecycles. The solution is designed with Role-Based Access Control and an easy-to-use content management system that allows content building. Features like Groups/Communities, Chatrooms, and Connect (Campus Feeds) encourage users to interact and engage, while messages and nudges offer strategic notifications and reminders. Additionally, it enables third-party integrations for products like LMS and SIS/ERP.
