Get Smart: How Wichita State University Is Using Jive To Prepare Students For Life Outside The Classroom

We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that WSU has chosen Jive to improve collaboration and knowledge sharing, initially within its Applied Technology Acceleration Institute (ATAI), and eventually amongst the university’s 15,000 students, faculty and staff. This Jive-n community helps industry partners retain social knowledge assets created during ATAI projects by empowering idea sharing amongst student employees, allowing them to tap into subject matter experts easily, and minimizing their reliance on email.



“Our industry partners consider Wichita State University and the ATAI an important part of their talent plan, and our goal is to reduce the time it takes for new graduates to become productive in their new roles. We’re doing this by bringing best practices from real-world companies into an academic setting,” said Dr. Ken Russell, executive director of the ATAI at WSU. “For example, Jive’s cutting-edge social capabilities help all kinds of organizations harness their intellectual property and break down silos. With Jive-n as the digital underpinning of our new Center for Social Knowledge, we’ll dramatically enrich student and industry collaboration and productivity, deliver clear business value to our partners, and take huge strides towards our higher education mission.”


We’re excited to work with Wichita State University and other education institutions like Ashworth College, British Columbia Institute of Technology, Clinton Global Initiative University, Milwaukee School of Engineering, McGraw Hill, MIT Sloan School of Management, Northwestern University, Pearson, Penn Foster and University of Chicago Booth School of Business that use Jive to improve knowledge sharing and collaboration between employees, faculty and students.
