Founded in 1871 as an institute for teacher preparation, West Chester University (WCU) is a comprehensive public institution, offering more than 118 undergraduate, 80+ graduate programs and 4 doctoral programs in more than 50 fields of study. Serving more than 17,000 students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, West Chester University has earned a national reputation for excellence, value and student success.
Like many universities in 2020, WCU needed to adapt to a virtual education model. The University did not want to simply rely on built-in laptop audio and video, and instead sought to design a simple-to-use web conferencing solution for classrooms and meeting spaces to provide an online experience that reflects the high quality of education students have come to expect.

“Because of IMS’s professionalism and technical expertise in the audio-visual industry, West Chester University was able to effectively accommodate remote/hybrid instruction for our faculty and students in 200 campus classrooms during the COVID-19 pandemic. We were pleased with how quickly IMS identified and installed a reliable and user-friendly Hyflex solution to meet our needs that has proven successful during the fall semester. Their highly-qualified staff understood our requirements and time constraints, and yet were able to complete this project on-time due to appropriate planning and scheduling, remarkable project management, commendable installation, and a thorough testing and commissioning process.”
