The future of digital campus experiences for independent colleges and universities in the U.S. gets brighter as the HESS Consortium and Pathify announce their strategic partnership ahead of the highly anticipated HESS Consortium National Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. This partnership expands Pathify’s recent collaboration efforts, including those with the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the Georgia Independent College Association (GICA), and the Kansas Independent College Association (KICA).
With 350+ member institutions, the HESS Consortium includes over a dozen Pathify customers including St. Mary’s College, St. John’s University-New York, Seton Hill University and Rollins College. This partnership offers the opportunity for HESS members to unify their technology stacks under Pathify’s portal, creating personalized modern student experiences. In addition to discounted pricing, the partnership ensures premium implementation support and success services tailored specifically for consortium members. “We’ve had the privilege of witnessing HESS’s values and mission through collaborations with several of their member institutions,” said Matt Hammond, Chief Revenue Officer at Pathify. “We are excited about extending our impact across a broader spectrum of HESS members.”
Keith Fowlkes, Executive Director of the HESS Consortium, expressed his excitement, stating, “We’re thrilled about officially partnering with Pathify. Their vendor-agnostic approach aligns seamlessly with the numerous apps and solutions our members use, and their dedication to the student experience and ability to consolidate tech investments makes life easier for IT leaders and administrators.”
