How we came to our decision to transition to Canvas

Rush University began evaluating its current Learning Management System in early 2019 with the development of a committee made up of faculty, students, and staff members. The LMS Review Committee developed a survey to evaluate institutional needs with regards to a learning management system; one survey was sent to faculty and one to students. After the needs were established, a Request for Proposals was written. The final decision was made to move forward with Canvas in Fall 2020.
