“Campus Management looks for people that are passionate about what we do for our client institutions, knowing that the end game is student success and the transformation of lives,” said Kathy Murphy, the Chief People Officer.

Milton told Ladders that Campus Management embodies the work hard, play hard mentality.

“We are constantly innovating and helping clients find solutions to their education technology challenges,” he said. “Even though we are driven to make institutions more successful and operationally efficient, we also take time to celebrate holidays and recognize employees who live our values.”
