Architects of open source adoption at Portland State University will detail a large, urban university's journey with an open source portfolio. A model for securing buy-in from administration, faculty, students, and IT will be introduced; our specific principles that have enabled successful, wide-spread implementation will be discussed; and key issues will be addressed, from aligning open source with your institutional mission to evaluating the real impact on IT staffing and infrastructure. Guidance on mitigating challenges will be provided by speakers who span faculty, IT, and administration positions.
