The Network Council is an appointed advisory body that considers policy issues that affect campus, regional, and national networks; and helps EDUCAUSE advocate thoughtfully and effectively regarding network issues.

The council engages on issues and concerns that may impact the future of networking, both at the college and university level and policy issues related to national and regional networks. The council communicates frequently and holds regular meetings. Additionally, the entire Network Council meets in person at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference.

The Network Council is an evolution of the Network Policy Council, and as such will continue to address the community's need to understand and address network issues in higher education. For more information:
