Modern Campus, the leading engagement platform for higher education, announced the acquisition of Augusoft, a leader in enrollment management for continuing and corporate education programs. The acquisition extends the Modern Campus customer base to nearly 2,000 colleges and universities across North America and allows the company to further advance and improve the delivery of continuing education while engaging modern learners for life.
With enrollment for traditional two- and four-year programs declining across most campuses, higher education institutions are investing in continuing, professional, and workforce education to fuel enrollment growth while delivering on their institutional mission to expand learning experiences, reach diverse populations, and create employment opportunities.
Modern Campus’s Destiny One product is the recognized leader in non-traditional student management, with a broad set of offerings that enable colleges and universities to thrive in continuing, online, and professional education. With Augusoft and its flagship Lumens product, Modern Campus now offers the most robust set of capabilities including products, services, and partnerships to serve the complete needs of non-traditional learners.
Both Destiny One and Lumens are purpose-built to enable customers to efficiently manage and grow their non-traditional student programs, and deliver outstanding student service by enabling the functionality, administrative capabilities, and efficiencies colleges and universities desire.
“Augusoft and Modern Campus have long been the two most successful software providers serving the continuing education market. By joining forces, we can now offer a one-stop shop for all CE programs,” said Cem Erdem, founder and chief executive officer at Augusoft. “We’re thrilled to team with leaders like The Riverside Company and Modern Campus who share our belief in the importance of lifelong learning and how our education system needs to adapt to the changing needs of modern learners.”
Augusoft employees will join Modern Campus, adding to a higher education powerhouse of exceptional industry talent. Brian Kibby will remain CEO of Modern Campus, and Cem Erdem will join the Modern Campus board of directors.
This transaction marks the fifth acquisition by Modern Campus in the past 12 months; the company acquired interactive campus map and virtual tour provider nuCloud in early 2021, followed by academic catalog and curriculum management provider DIGARC, and student engagement and development leader Presence. Earlier this month, Modern Campus announced its acquisition of leading higher education text-messaging provider Signal Vine.
