Higher Education Chief Data Officers Working Group

The Higher Education Chief Data Officers (HE-CDO) group is focused on providing a supportive and collaborative environment for institutional chief data officers—and others who may not have that title but who have institution-wide responsibility for data and analytics—to share information and speak freely regarding news, issues, and concerns affecting data in higher education. This group is to be accessed by information professionals, and its resources are to be used for the benefit of institutional data and analytics programs.

Note: This group is by invitation only; please see the charterfor details about membership. If you are interested in the topic but do not meet the requirements to join this group, please consider subscribing to the Data Governance and Chief Data Officers Community Group.
