Showcase Series

STRATEGICALLY ALIGN WITH GRAND CHALLENGES IN HIGHER ED

The EDUCAUSE Showcase Series, based on our popular Top 10 IT Issues, spotlights the most urgent issues the higher ed community identifies each year. For each topic, EDUCAUSE gathers the tools and resources the community needs into one place to help guide campuses forward.

Sponsorship of the series provides an all-in-one opportunity for your organization to be part of strategic conversations taking place in higher education technology and remain top of mind with your prospective customers.

Two packages are available: Premier and Basic. Basic packages come with all of the same great benefits as 2022 including thought leadership, branding, and advertising. The new premier package comes with these benefits plus participation in showcase webinars and panel participation at the 2023 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference.
