Living in the shadow of today’s consumer economy, higher education is on the hook for delivering seamless, personalized experiences while staying true to its educational mission. As institutions grapple with this new reality, uncertainties are quick to confront them: Who will our students be in the coming decade? How do we optimize support across an extended student lifecycle? How can we overcome pervasive integration and data-quality issues to create an agile technology ecosystem that adapts as student needs change?

Sessions

This three-part interactive series will explore the mandate for student-centric innovation and lay out a roadmap for higher education IT leaders to develop a sustainable digital strategy for years ahead. During each session we will explore a case study in conversation with a CIO leading change on their campuses and participants will have an opportunity to raise questions and share how they are managing the ongoing and accelerated change at their institutions.

Use the drop-down in the banner above to register for one of the sessions. Sessions are best suited for Chief Information Officers, Chief Digitial Officers and Chief Technology Officer. Registration for each session is limited to two attendees per institution.

Calls for continued and continuous innovation in a post-COVID world are already being issued from presidents, provosts and other leaders on campus.
