Through the COVID pandemic, Trinity Western University (TWU) adapted its approach to become more student-focused in all aspects of its service delivery. From that was born the Connected Campus program, whose goal was to prioritize and deliver cross-organizational projects at the intersection of technology, people, and process, that would appreciably improve the student experience and advance TWU's vision. The Service Hub was launched in Fall 2021 as TWU's first one-stop-shop for students to get help on anything from technology to class registration to housing. In this session, attendees will hear about how TWU's IT leaders influenced the formation and outcomes of the Connected Campus, how the program has had a lasting influence on campus culture, and the success, challenges, and opportunities of the TWU Service Hub.
