Campus Consortium was established in 2003 by 14 universities as a response to increasing IT budget cuts, resource constraints and expectations of incoming technological-savvy students. The Campus Consortium's mission is to help members reduce the time, cost and effort associated with implementing enterprise IT services by leveraging shared IT services, lessons learned and best practices so that each member can avoid reinventing the wheel.
The Consortium focuses on improving the future of university education through organizing, leading, and sponsoring higher education conferences. For the past 15 years, the Campus Consortium Annual Conference has brought together universities and colleges from across the United States to learn from industry leaders, fellow CIOs and IT managers, vendors, and sponsors. While the Annual Conference is the largest and most popular of Campus Consortium's education technology conferences, it is only one of many events put on by the Consortium. The Consortium targets regions as well, providing more concentrated and hands-on learning experiences to local institutions. In June of 2016, the Consortium will be hosting three regional conferences across the United States. Learn more about Campus Consortium Events.
