Public Sector



From K-12 through all tiers of higher education, educational institutions are seeking more effective ways to engage students and faculty to enhance the campus and constituent experience.

WWT has worked with campus communities, school districts and libraries across the U.S. to provide technology solutions, and we have proven success in helping our education customers achieve their goals. We recognize the challenges these entities are facing to support the technology needs of students, teachers and administrative staff, especially as resources are limited or stretched thin. 

Our goal is to help educational institutions identify, assess and select the right technology to develop innovative digital solutions and services that align with their priorities and represent the best fit to meet the needs of the institution while ensuring student and faculty success.

From strengthening academic networks and delivering quality personalized experiences, to expanding access to university resources regardless of location, WWT fully supports your ever-evolving approach to learning, all while maintaining the highest levels of security and compliance.

Our deep bench of education technology experts, combined with our best-of-breed solution partnerships, provide educators and institutions with solutions ranging from secure and collaborative remote learning to human capital innovation using enormous volumes of contextually rich data to achieve greater student outcomes.
