Higher Education Evolved

We are aiming to evolve the landscape of technology in higher education in the following ways:

  • Empower decision-makers with good intelligence. We publish tools that drive institutional effectiveness and planning from a People-first perspective.
  • Engage technology teams with open-source initiatives. We collaborate with other technology teams to build, deploy, and share open-source tools in the higher education community through our Open Innovation in Higher Education™ program.
  • Publish and disseminate research, best practices, and lessons learned. We are in the trenches alongside every public institution in America, using the same tools to generate the same information that drive college operations. Our difference is in promoting automation, strategic collaboration, and institutional evolution.
