Diverse legal program adopts digital platform to further bolster student community

Press Release updated: Oct 15, 2020 07:00 MDT

Campus.app, a contemporary mobile and web-based portal platform, today announced a new partnership with Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School (WMU-Cooley Law School).

WMU-Cooley Law School resulted from the 2014 affiliation that combined WMU’s status as a nationally-ranked, public, comprehensive research university with the commitment to practical legal education of an independent, non-profit, national law school. WMU-Cooley is accredited by both the American Bar Association and the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

“WMU-Cooley Law School has a robust academic program which offered both in-person and online curriculum prior to COVID-19. Adding a digital campus through Campus.app rounds out their existing program with an online forum to share the latest news and resources,” said Chase Williams, CEO at Campus. “With an easy way to connect more students who share the same goals, we see a natural increase in retention.”

Campus.app is a modern, cloud-hosted portal that connects people, platforms, and processes. The application serves as a dynamic, one-stop-shop on any device. Campus.app offers an integrated digital community that increases engagement and improves the overall student experience.

“We celebrate the diversity of our student base, and recognize that online course structures have made our programs more accessible. For example, people can now balance a career while advancing their education,” said Sally J. Backofen, Director of Information Technology at WMU-Cooley Law School. “It stands to reason that a mobile-accessible portal that offers tailored experiences to different profiles will help connect students that may otherwise not experience our campus culture first-hand. We also see Campus.app providing a more comprehensive notification system during these unusual times.”

The Campus.app team is thrilled to have the opportunity to assist WMU-Cooley Law School in amplifying critical communications, connecting people to reinforce a sense of community, and facilitating business continuity throughout the current climate and beyond.
