February 11, 2019 – For the third year in a row, Santa Fe College has been recognized as a finalist for the Salesforce Summit Award. The award is presented each year to outstanding, trailblazing higher education institutions for their work with products developed by the Nasdaq-traded company, Salesforce.com. Salesforce is known as a leader in cloud computing, and the development of customer relationship management (CRM) systems.
This year, SF’s International Student Services (ISS) work with Salesforce has been chosen as a finalist for the Summit Award for Overall Excellence in Operational Efficiency. ISS was specifically recognized for utilizing the Salesforce platform in opening doors for international students. ISS tracked a double-digit increase in international enrollment in the 2017-2018 academic year, fueled by its use of the digital platform to streamline the enrollment process for incoming students.
The recognition by Salesforce also cites a dramatic increase in outreach to prospective international students, a reduction in immigration issues and an increase in graduation rates.
SF has been utilizing Salesforce for five years and is the only institution ever to be named a finalist three years in a row. Previous finalist distinctions recognized enrollment gains tracked by the Salesforce team in the Office of Admissions, and graduation success with the Finish at the Top program.
The other institutions named as finalists for the award are the University of New England and the University of Miami. An open vote for the winner of the award by Salesforce institutions is currently being held, so make sure to vote for SF by Friday, March 1, 2019, at https://www.getfeedback.com/r/x4THCkfW. The winner of the award will be announced at Salesforce’s annual Higher Education Summit, to be held in April in San Diego, California.
