Today’s higher education landscape requires dynamic leadership, a well-aligned culture of evidence, and technology that is usable by and accessible to everyone.  Now more than ever, institutions are challenged to meet a variety of academic, administrative, and strategic goals—despite increasing demands and access to fewer dedicated resources.

This exclusive workshop is designed for senior higher education leaders committed to fostering institutional effectiveness at their institution. This free event has been designed to afford a unique opportunity for leaders to gather and discuss their roles in fostering systemic and sustainable institutional change. By forging new relationships and using information technology (IT) to guide data-driven achievement, leaders can achieve collaboration and accountability among academic, business, and financial units of their institution. Presenters and participants will examine the growing opportunity for institutional leadership to work together to leverage IT to achieve institutional goals.

Among many featured speakers will be Dr. Jim Ptaszynski, who leads the higher education world-wide strategy at Microsoft. Join us to hear the perspective of a former educator, now at Microsoft, on how to unlock the benefits of technology that you already own to improve learning and achieve your institutional goals.
