Technology Report: Access Control in Higher Education

HID Global

Safety is a major concern among parents and prospective students as they consider which college or university to attend, and access control systems are an essential element of a secure campus. Higher education institutions are seeking ways to embrace technology as a means of improving their operations and attracting students. These considerations are driving the discussion of access control in higher education and how it impacts every department and stakeholder.

To bring attention to these changes, HID Global and Genetec commissioned a report based on jointly conducted research. The result of that effort, Technology Report: Access Control in Higher Education, provides findings and insights about access control in higher education.
