Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA) has announced that the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) has deployed CA's CleverPath Portal in an effort to provide tailored and dynamic delivery of information and services to faculty, staff, and students.
Situated on the U.S./Mexico border, UTEP is a research-intensive doctoral university with a Mexican-American majority student population. UTEP is committed to providing access to an educational community and encouraging the graduation of its students--many of who live off campus. UTEP also uses the portal to facilitate communication between the faculty and the administration, to coordinate research projects and to share knowledge within and between academic departments. Dozens of applications including email, course material delivery, and financial accounting have been integrated into the portal.
The portal was developed using Microsoft .NET architecture; CA Technology Services supported the design and implementation. UTEP is planning to roll out the portal in Spanish.
