“Over the last year, Anthology has doubled down on our commitment to helping colleges and universities illuminate the right pathways to success for every student through connected data,” said Jim Milton, chairman and CEO of Anthology.

Anthology, a leading provider of proven higher education solutions that solve complex challenges associated with the entire learner lifecycle, today announced its significant milestones commemorating its transformational first year as a combined company.

Now serving more than 2,000 higher education institutions with data-driven innovations that address all facets of the collegiate student journey, Anthology closed its fiscal year with nearly 400 solution go-lives and increased overall revenue. As a result, the company was recently honored by Microsoft for outstanding sales achievement and innovation as part of the Microsoft Business Applications 2021/2022 Inner Circle award. Anthology also won the 2021 Tech Edvocate Award for Best Student Information System and Best Higher Education Leader – honoring Chairman and CEO Jim Milton.

“At Anthology, we believe that learners need to be at the center of everything we do. They are all unique and bring different backgrounds and interests in what they are seeking in terms of higher education outcomes,” said Milton. “Over the last year, Anthology has been resolute on our commitment to helping colleges and universities illuminate the right pathways to success for every student through connected data, enabling them to then offer the right combination of academic programs, skills and experiences for successful outcomes.”

After a year working mostly in virtual environments due to the pandemic, Anthology held its inaugural user conference – Anthology Together – in person in Dallas, with more than 800 customers, partners and Anthologists in attendance for three days of collaborative and inspiring sessions on leveraging innovation in higher education, in July. Customers presenting ranged from the University of Tennessee Knoxville and Illinois Eastern Community College to University of Texas – Tyler, the Colorado School of Mines Foundation and more.

“After implementing and utilizing Anthology Reach at UT Tyler we have realized many more options to engage with prospective students and measure the effectiveness of our campaigns,” said David Barron, University of Texas – Tyler Associate Vice President for University Enrollment Management. “We are excited about the further development and opportunities to move us forward as an institution by partnering with Anthology.”

Also of note is the recent launch of Anthology Academy, a comprehensive learning platform with extensive educational resources and on-demand training opportunities to elevate overall institutional success with Anthology’s integrated suite of solutions.

Among its key milestones this year, Anthology was recognized for the seventh year in a row by the Tambellini Group as one of the leading student systems vendors in its 2021 Student Systems US Higher Education Market Share, Trends, and Leaders Report. Anthology ranked first in total student selections when counting all sectors.

Additionally, the Anthology Encompass platform enabled 1.3 million fundraising contributions totaling nearly $400 million for customer institutions – mostly comprising small donations – over the last year through customers’ Days of Giving, Giving Tuesday campaigns, and online giving forms.
