The JesuitNET Global team customizes each strategic project to facilitate the development of a plan that best meets the goals of the institution. Examples include:
EXAMPLE 1: As an implementing partner with Jesuit Commons: Higher Education at Margins (JC:HEM), JesuitNET Global provided the site analysis of the proposed learning centers – conducting terrain and environmental studies to specify and procure two state-of-the art computer learning centers in refugee camps. JesuitNET Global secured donations from the employees of Microsoft to provide all of the software needed in the labs. JesuitNET Global trained and supports the IT representatives on location and brokers the relationship with IT needs as they surface.
JesuitNET Global has teamed with Microsoft to be a lead partner in the Multipoint Server systems used to scale the centers while maintaining costs. JesuitNET Global worked with Gonzaga University, University of San Francisco, Santa Clara University, John Carroll University, Georgetown University, Creighton University and Regis University to provide reusable technology (projectors, laptops, and software) to assist in equipping the remote learning centers.

EXAMPLE 2: JesuitNET Global provides after-hours technical support for Fordham University online programs, hosting an 800# that rings into the help desk during the day and provides coverage for calls outside of normal business hours.
EXAMPLE 3: JesuitNET Global hosts a streaming media server that is used by several institutions to deliver high-quality lectures for a variety of platforms. The server also serves as a backup to university-hosted solutions to provide critical redundancy should their internal systems fail.
EXAMPLE 4: JesuitNET Global served as system administrator for the Gonzaga Blackboard-hosted solution for online students for five years while building internal capacity to meet the needs of the online student.
EXAMPLE 5: JesuitNET Global worked with Gonzaga and Deltak to outline the processes and procedures for online marketing, recruiting, and admissions that many Jesuit institutions use today.
EXAMPLE 6: JesuitNET Global is working with Gonzaga to assist in the creation of a Virtual Campus that will meet the needs of any technology-enhanced initiative at the university.
EXAMPLE 7: JesuitNET Global created and launched the marketing and admission strategy for several institutions as an alternative to using a third-party vendor. Using processes perfected over ten years of research in the online delivery arena, JesuitNET has shown remarkable success in launching, delivering, and protecting the assets of the institutions.
