About Connect

EDUCAUSE Connect is the place to connect and collaborate with higher education technology professionals. Here, you can:


Join EDUCAUSE Community Groups (CGs)

EDUCAUSE Community Groups (CGs) are online communities where higher education professionals learn from and network with each other around shared topics and interests. Groups interact throughout the year via online discussion forums on the EDUCAUSE Connect platform and virtual meetings, and many meet in-person at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference.

Engage in Working Groups

Engage in 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.

As a group, you can define solutions and create useful resources that address leading technology topics such as cybersecurity, privacy, cyberinfrastructure, data and analytics, IT services and management, student success, and workforce. EDUCAUSE Working Groups generate various products including toolkits, articles, and frameworks.
