NACCU New Member Highlight:
University of Saint Joseph
In this New Member Highlight, we catch up with Megan Vo with NACCU member University of Saint Joseph.
What is your position/title?
Associate Director of Student Affairs for Card and Auxiliary Services
How long have you been at your institution?
Five years at the University--mostly in Residential Life. This position and office was newly created in September with the one card implementation.
What are you most hoping to gain from joining the NACCU community?
As a new, one-person office for the University, I am tasked with finding the full potential for the one card system. My role is to collaborate with key constituents on our campus to accomplish all tasks from safety and security, to retention and analytics. In joining NACCU I hope to connect to other professionals and Universities to learn more about the potential for the card services office. Utilizing the resources available through NACCU I will be able to create a strategic plan and mission for the University.
Are you considering moving to the mobile credential? If not, what is the next planned initiative for your campus card program?
We are interested in exploring mobile credential in the future. We first need to take full advantage of some of the other basic features of a one card system.
What is one feature you wish you could add to your campus card program?
We are currently expanding our functionality to include program attendance/check-in/event registration to the one card through some grant funding. This is making it easier for us to track data across multiple functions of the University. As we get more offices and staff integrated into the system, we will continue to dream and imagine the possibilities.
What system(s) platforms does your campus card program use?
Does your program have social media links? If so, share so we can follow you!
We hope you enjoyed learning a little about Megan and the University of Saint Joseph as we officially welcome them to the NACCU community!
