This Educause Community Group is designed for the discussion of information technology issues that are unique to small colleges, those with an FTE enrollment under 5,000. 
We share our issues, ideas, and solutions related to the planning, implementation, and management of technology-related resources.
We have bi-monthly meet-ups on zoom, covering a variety of topics. Participants are encouraged to submit discussion items ahead of time but may also ask for feedback during the meeting. Occasionally we have special topic conversations or webinars on zoom. And we have an active discussion forum.

When posting to the discussions, it is very helpful to include your institutional affiliation and contact info.
