EDUCAUSE Working Groups

EDUCAUSE Working Groups are a great way to work closely with peers from a variety of institutions to address challenges and help the higher education community prepare for the future. Collaborate with other campus leaders to define solutions and create useful resources for the higher education community on top technology topics, including security, privacy, cyberinfrastructure, data and analytics, IT services and management, student success, workforce, and more.

  • Join a Group: Participation in working groups is open to all EDUCAUSE members, though space may be limited. Rosters are set at the beginning of each project. Calls for participation are announced on the EDUCAUSE website, via EDUCAUSE Community Groups, and in EDUCAUSE newsletters. Learn more about how groups are formed and managed.
  • Propose a Topic: Do you have an idea that you think would benefit from focused attention? Have you started a project at your own institution that you would like to share with the broader higher education community? Is there a specific problem that you would like to see addressed? Let us know!
