Kuali is a software company with a goal, to simplify higher ed administration. Their cloud based tools, including; Kuali Student, Kuali Financials, Kuali Research and Kuali Ready help colleges manage their entire student lifecycle from enrollment to graduation and everything in between.
There is so much that goes on behind that scenes at every college and university, but most educators don’t get into higher education to write grants, fill out paperwork or manage financials. They are in it to help students learn and to take young adults and set them on a path to success. There are a lot of software companies out there, designing products for higher education. Unfortunately, a lot of those companies come up short in one area or another.
Kuali and their four core products, provide the technical tools to support each moving part of a student’s life cycle, making it easier for faculty to get back to teaching and students to get back to learning.
Kuali Student is a feature packed curriculum management and catalog management platform. The platform is designed to help administrators manage every aspect of learning design. If your institution is offering traditional courses, or if your school is trying new approaches to learning, Kuali student can help administrators, instructional designers and faculty create and expand programs to meet the needs of today’s students and learning environments.
Using Kuali’s Curriculum Management tool, you can:
- Make better curricular decisions based on a single source of truth

Today’s colleges and universities are offering hundreds of courses in any given semester.

Financial statement audits are quicker and more efficient and all of your school’s backend administrative processes are designed with workflows specific to each institution.
With Kuali Financials, colleges and universities don’t need to worry about their software ever being out of date. Like Google as soon as an update or new feature is ready it’s immediately available to you. Also, if your school ever leaves Kuali the code is open and the data stays with the institution, there’s no holding your important data hostage.
We couldn’t find another higher ed software platform that handled curriculum and catalog management, financials and research. As we said earlier, Kuali wants to make sure all of your college or universities processes are easier so you can focus on learning. One of the most long tail and painful processes for administrators, professors, researchers and instructors is research and grand writing.
