Resources for Presidents and Senior Executives

Wednesday, September 3, 2014


These executive briefs are designed to help senior institutional leaders—presidents, provosts, trustees, and deans—optimize the impact of IT in higher education.

The Foundations offer a framework for considering higher education’s most pressing IT challenges as strategically important opportunities for the institution. The Key Questions deepen these perspectives with data and examples. Together, the briefs help guide strategic planning and risk management. The material is designed for use in an interactive workshop format or as stand-alone material.

This pilot collection is intended to provide EDUCAUSE community members with resources they can use to communicate IT trends to non-IT leaders. The Key Questions executive briefs were supported by a grant from the Lumina Foundation.
