SunGard Higher Education Summit Convenes in New Orleans March 20-23

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 18, 2011

SunGard Higher Education Summit Convenes in New Orleans March 20-23
SunGard Summit attendees will donate time to the ReNEW Charter Management

WHAT: SunGard Summit 2011

WHERE: New Orleans Morial Convention Center (NOMCC)

WHEN: March 20-23, 2011

DETAILS: More than 6,000 higher education professionals from around the world will attend SunGard Summit 2011 in New Orleans March 20-23. SunGard Summit, the annual conference for SunGard Higher Education customers, is the ultimate higher education learning experience. The focus for SunGard Summit is to bring together higher education institutions and new technologies and learning tools to provide students with the best learning experiences.

The SunGard Summit will sponsor a community program event that will help give back to the City of New Orleans. SunGard Summit is working with ReNEW Charter Management Organization in helping a local charter school clean, repair, paint and refurbish.

Additionally, the annual SunGard Summit Charity Benefit Raffle will benefit the Roots of Music Program of New Orleans, a free year-round program for middle school students in New Orleans that no longer have music programs in their schools. All proceeds will go directly to the program with SunGard Higher Education matching the amount raised from for the sale of raffle tickets.

SunGard Higher Education serves colleges, universities and foundations in 40 countries worldwide. Through its Open Digital Campus strategy, SunGard collaborates with the higher education community and provides software and services to help institutions find better ways to teach, learn, manage and connect. SunGard Higher Education’s mission is to promote individual achievement, enhance institutional performance, and foster education communities worldwide.

The last SunGard meeting held in New Orleans was in 2003, and this year’s meeting is set to generate $7 million in economic impact.
