EDUCAUSE Members speak for themselves...

Return on investment for all campus IT stakeholders

Chris D. Ferguson

"EDUCAUSE has by far been the best ROI for my professional development dollar. No other organization brings librarians, technologists, administrators, and faculty together to understand the present and to shape the future of information services in higher education. No other organization so effectively combines R&D, best practices, compelling and timely publications, and access to communities of interest and practice. And no one else is making so substantial an investment in cultivating the next generation of information services leaders."

—Chris D. Ferguson

Associate Provost for Information and Technology Services, Pacific Lutheran University

 

A president's perspective

John C. Hitt

"In these times of fiscal restraint, institutions of higher education must ensure that their resources are being used wisely and effectively. From my perspective, UCF's EDUCAUSE institutional membership continues to be a sound investment. Participation in EDUCAUSE meetings, committees, and professional development events, as well as online resources like the Core Data Service and Effective Practices and Solutions services, help keep our IT staff current on key issues and enable them to more effectively plan and manage our IT resources. Likewise, EDUCAUSE Review and EDUCAUSE Quarterly enable me and many of our senior executives to stay informed on IT issues that impact our institution. In summary, our EDUCAUSE membership continues to bring significant value to our institution."

—John C. Hitt

President, University of Central Florida

 

Professional networking and the big picture

Roberta L. Lembke

"The opportunity to participate in EDUCAUSE committee activities has been an extremely rewarding and educational experience for me. My committee work has given me a chance to step back from my institutional responsibilities to see the higher educational IT field from a national and even international perspective. Because of this I feel I can make more informed decisions for my institution. Plus, I now have new professional contacts and friends that I may have never had the opportunity to meet!"

—Roberta L. Lembke

Director, Information and Instructional Technologies, St Olaf College

 

Professional development

Kathy Monday

"Each year our institution sends a contingent to the EDUCAUSE annual conference. It is a great investment. Our group returns to campus invigorated, full of excitement and new ideas. This conference provides opportunities to learn what innovators are doing, learn about best practices, see the latest vendor product offerings, network with colleagues, and be inspired. It is the best conference for information technology professionals in higher education, hands down."

—Kathy Monday

Vice President for Information Services, University of Richmond
