Today, Redeemer is announcing Reaching Higher, the university’s digital campus project. Through advanced technology, the project will create online experiences that connect everyone and everything at Redeemer University College.

Reaching Higher will bring new solutions to six areas that are pivotal to the success of Redeemer students, faculty and staff and keep our community connected:

  • A new Dash: Redeemer will replace its internal website Dash with an improved, modern experience that allows you to easily access the information you need and complete tasks.
  • New ways to communicate: Redeemer will introduce a central hub for communicating across campus and staying up-to-date on the go. This will lessen the number of announcements sent through email.
  • Payments on campus: Through a shared system and new physical and virtual campus cards, it will be easier to manage campus cash and make payments.
  • Payments online: An integrated online payment system will allow students and parents to make tuition and fee payments online. Redeemer will also be able to offer online payment options for more transactions.
  • Online forms and signatures: With an online workflow, Redeemer will be able to widely convert paper forms into online forms and use e-signatures.
  • Analytics and course planning: Students will be able to plan their courses online. Through a new analytics tool, staff and faculty will be able to access meaningful data for effective decisions.

Work on these exciting changes has already begun and will continue through the 2019-2020 academic year. The first improvements will launch this summer and be ready for the fall 2019 term. All of the Reaching Higher solutions will launch by the summer of 2020 and be available in the 2020-2021 academic year.

In the months ahead, you can expect to be emailed regular Reaching Higher updates and to be informed of training as launches approach. Updates will also be shared on this website, which will be a central hub for the project. You may hear from a Reaching Higher team member if there is a specific task that you need to complete or an opportunity to update information.

As a Reaching Higher project team, we look forward to the improved experience that these tools will offer Redeemer faculty, staff and students. We are grateful for the dedicated work being done to prepare collaborative tools that will complement Redeemer’s close-knit campus community.

Let’s reach higher.
