Joyce University of Nursing & Health Sciences Expands Partnership With Collegis Education for Technology Managed Services

Collegis will provide Joyce University with resources to improve and scale its IT infrastructure, support the student experience, and accelerate innovation

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (June 4, 2024) — Joyce University of Nursing & Health Sciences, a growing provider of health care education, announced today the beginning of a new multi-year partnership agreement with Collegis Education to receive technology managed services. Joyce University, formerly Ameritech College, is expanding its long-term partnership with Collegis as it invests in technology for evolving models of educational delivery, develops opportunities to continue to innovate, and builds its capacity to operate across time zones to support a more diverse student population.

Recognizing that it did not have the internal capacity to support its IT goals or the resources to build the necessary infrastructure, Joyce University leadership turned to Collegis for its best in-class services.

“Technology has become more central to the student and employee experience. At Joyce University, we recognize that we must purposefully invest in technology systems, innovation, and people — not only to support our future growth, but to reach our goal of becoming the first name in prelicensure education in the United States,” said Dr. John Smith-Coppes, president & CEO. “Our expanded partnership with Collegis is an incredibly powerful and healthy move for us as a university. I am thrilled to be collaborating with an industry expert like Collegis who will help make us noticeably stronger in very short order.”

Under the leadership of Collegis executive Dr. Jason Nairn, who will serve as chief information officer, the Joyce University IT team will partner with more than 165 Collegis IT professionals who bring the expertise needed to deliver the University’s technology needs. The benefits that Joyce University will realize from this partnership with Collegis include access to data analytics, instructional design, institutional effectiveness, and project management teams. This will allow the University to scale with more precision and efficacy than in the past, immediately expanding its 24/7 tech support, providing medical simulation technology expertise, and increasing and improving its application management and data governance.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Joyce University as they leverage technology and data to innovate and grow their programs for preparing the health care professionals of the future,” said Kim Fahey, president and CEO, Collegis Education. “This continued collaboration reflects Collegis’s commitment to delivering exceptional IT solutions and building strong client relationships centered around shared values and strong outcomes.”
