What are EDUCAUSE Groups?

EDUCAUSE Constituent and Discussion Groups are member-driven electronic discussion groups. As a participant in open, informal "communities of practice," you will find the responsiveness of an engaged group and a network of professionals. Most groups interact throughout the year via electronic discussions and meet at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference. Discussions and meeting minutes are archived and fully searchable.

Some EDUCAUSE Discussion Groups are closely tied to current EDUCAUSE programs, such as the Cybersecurity Initiative. These groups benefit from the support of EDUCAUSE staff liaisons.

NOTE: Postings to a Constituent Group listserv are indexed and archived on the EDUCAUSE website in a publicly searchable format, in keeping with the association's commitment to open sharing of ideas, issues, and practices involving information technology in higher education. This allows quick review of past discussions; it also makes postings accessible via Internet search engines. Archives since September, 2011 can be viewed on each group's page. View older archives >
