AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 9, 2022 – Apogee, a leading managed IT services provider solely focused on higher education, will present a webinar on Feb. 24, 2022, focusing on how colleges and universities can effectively innovate and address budget challenges with managed IT services. Led by Apogee Executive Vice President Matt Loecke, a panel of campus leaders from Centenary College, Eureka College, and Ithaca College will discuss how they partnered with Apogee to offload network operations so that their teams can tackle strategic projects essential to institutional resilience and financial health.
