"Colleges and universities are concentrating on student success to address concerns about the costs, value, and outcomes of higher education. Student success initiatives are making use of every available resource and opportunity and involving every relevant stakeholder. Institutional technology is all three: resource, opportunity, and stakeholder.
The 2017 issues list identifies the four focus areas for higher education information technology:
- Develop the IT foundations
- Develop the data foundations
- Ensure effective leadership
- Enable successful students
These issues and focus areas are not just about today. Higher education information technology is very clearly building foundations for student success to last into the future."
