Annual Technologies Committee Meeting


February 28 - March 2, 2018

Big Ten Conference Center | Rosemont, IL 

 

Faculty, students, and staff are all sophisticated consumers of technology and this technology provides flexibility both in terms of time and space, decreases costs, shows environmental responsibility, as well as increases social opportunities. Additionally, students are looking for increased use of technology in the classroom and for online research management tools. A campus must prioritize an institution’s technology needs and wants and has to balance those with the needs and wants of the students. Meanwhile colleges and universities are continually being pushed to find ways to contain or reduce their costs while simultaneously maintaining or increasing their productivity. 

Innovative solutions often surface whenever higher education administrators and IT professionals address their common concerns through collaboration. The Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) has undertaken several collaborative and multi-institutional technology initiatives in order to increase productivity and reduce institutional administrative costs. 

The Annual Technologies Committee meeting will bring together an intimate group of higher education chief information officers, technology experts, and information technology (IT) procurement professionals from across the Midwest to address their IT challenges, share best practices, and find innovative solutions.
