The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) and Seward Incorporated worked with the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (formerly WCET, the Western Cooperative for Educational Telecommunications) to develop the Center for Transforming Student Services in 2005. The site, selected as a StudentAffairs.com as their December “Web Site of the Month”, is a virtual resource for higher education institutions interested in assessing the quality of their student services offered via the web.

Map of CENTSS usage

Since 2005, over 200 institutions of higher education have used the CENTSS audit to assess their student services. In addition to the CENTSS Audit, CENTSS offers opportunities for learning and collaboration through its workshops, webcasts, and recognition of innovations in student services online.
