Journalist Margaret Fuller once said, “If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.”

Even before COVID-19 shut down campuses around the nation and the world, higher education was at a crossroads. Today, however, charting a new direction is more critical than ever. In a year without precedent — one that’s seen traditional instruction upended by a pandemic — there’s never been a greater need for expert thought leaders who can provide the guidance and expertise that higher education professionals need to navigate such a massive sea change.

Faced with a barrage of new challenges, university IT leaders and stakeholders are hungry for creative solutions and guidance. At the same time, IT experts across higher education are reimagining ways for technology to solve higher education’s biggest problems, from enrollment challenges to cybersecurity to student privacy and safety.
