Can technologists and academics learn to speak the same language in support of advancing the academic mission of the campus, while not losing sight of student success? We believe the answer is a resounding yes. Join us for a packed 50-minute session where we point to real campus examples and where you have the option to engage with peers, explore Ellucian solutions, and join a conversation about how culture, collaboration, and change play into this harmony.
