NEBHE, through its partnerships with Packback and the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC), offers Cost Savings Programs that were developed in response to recognized needs by postsecondary institutions. Cost Savings is an area of NEBHE that grows as needs are identified. All education institutions or public agencies in New England can participate.

Packback

NEBHE offers an online discussion platform that allows faculty to deliver engaging online courses. It enables educators to improve student curiosity, engagement and critical thinking through highly structured, rigorous discussion.

 

NEBHE’s Technology Contracts

NEBHE offers cost saving purchasing options through its agreements with MHEC. These agreements aggregate volume purchases to lower product costs and reduce the time institutions must spend developing and conducting an RFP process and reviewing bids since this work is done by MHEC. Institutions and organizations can purchase the goods or services knowing that the due diligence in selecting the vendor has already been done. These savings are available to New England colleges and universities; K-12 districts and entities; city, county, and state governments, and some non-profit organizations purchasing computers, software, printers, and other products.

 

NEBHE’s Cyber Insurance

NEBHE offers MHEC Cyber Insurance, an approach that analyzes the cyber threat environment, assesses vulnerabilities in security through controls and determines financial exposure. The program benchmarks how much cyber coverage similar institutions are buying.

NEBHE’s Student Health Insurance

NEBHE’s comprehensive insurance solutions through MHECare respond to increasing costs and concern for student health. Benefits and services include coverage for a wide array of student groups, as well as a commitment to promote the value of student health and student insurance to higher education leadership. The program offers a contract with national underwriter UnitedHealthcare StudentResources.

 

NEBHE’s Master Property Program

The MPP is a collaborative venture that provides comprehensive property coverage, specifically tailored to the needs of today’s college campuses, while reducing insurance costs and improving asset protection.

Marsh USA Inc. provides program administration, collaboratively underwritten by multiple worldwide underwriters and is supported by Captive Resources, Inc. under the direction of a Leadership Committee representative of the insured institutions. Participation in the program includes over 170 campuses with total insured values of over $100 billion.
