Why IT Matters to Higher Education

Broad View for the Future Wordle


Stephen J. Laster
To succeed tomorrow, IT leaders today need to address several core technology issues and challenges. Together, these issues constitute six building blocks that can form a new pyramid, one leading ultimately to higher education IT value.
Bret L. Ingerman, Catherine Yang, and the 2011 EDUCAUSE Current Issues Committee
EDUCAUSE presents the top-ten IT-related issues in terms of strategic importance to the institution, as revealed by the twelfth annual EDUCAUSE Current Issues Survey.
Christopher J. Mackie
"In a world where so many budget choices reduce to zero-sum or even negative-sum, multi-institutional collaboration is one of the few options that allow the possibility of a significantly positive-sum outcome."
