Forgive me for being terribly derelict in getting these out. These are summary notes from our SIG meeting in November. A few things stand out:

 

1.       There seems to be a need for information and resources on student affairs computing

2.       There is a wide range of models to support student affairs IT

3.       We think it would be beneficial to compile some lists of commercial software that is used by student affairs

 

To this last bullet, I think we need to start small. And so I would propose we pick one area to concentrate on from these areas:

·         Housing

·         Student organizational management

·         Student discipline

 

What do you think will have the most impact?

David, since Student Housing is one of Student Affair's largest functional areas, perhaps this is where we start? Just my .02 :-)

Hi Student Affairs CG,

 

I’m new to the traffic here, but was alerted to the notes from your November meeting.  For those who don’t know me, I’m the service owner for the EDUCAUSE Core Data Service.

 

I see that you’re interested in compiling a list of vendors/products for student affairs systems.  The attached portion of the EDUCAUSE Core Data Service collects vendor/product information for certain enterprise systems.  We’re currently renovating this portion of the survey to include more systems and more clearly defined system categories.  This might be a good opportunity for your group to plug-in with us. 

 

Right now we’re compiling a list of applications and whether they are considered “core” or “adjunct” technologies.  The table below is a sample of what we have so far.  In the sort-term, we plan to gather vendor/product information for as many “core” technologies as possible while balancing survey length and complexity.  Please let me know if any number of you would like to help with this work.  Thanks!

 

-Leah

I was at the most recent NASPAtech conference, and could likely makes some progress with cross-pollination and/or data gathering, given agreed upon questions to ask.
