Session Type: General Session
Climate change, conservation, and energy costs are current topics of significant attention and debate. How do they impact institutions of higher education, and, more specifically, how do they impact IT organizations? Further, what roles, responsibilities, and opportunities do colleges and universities, and their IT organizations, have to address these challenges? This session will outline the challenges and suggest ways that institutional and IT leaders at all levels can become more aware and personally active to bring about a more sustainable future.
