EDUCAUSE Leadership Series | Exploring Artificial Intelligence Use Cases, Applications, and Initiatives in Higher Education

Formerly known as the Hawkins Leadership Roundtable

Higher education institutions are beginning to form and deploy their artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives at all organizational levels. In this leadership series, we’ll closely examine several institutions’ diverse applications of agentic, generative, and embedded AI. Additionally, participants will discuss related topics at their tables: ethical considerations, best practices, successful implementations, research applications, learner support, and other strategies for leveraging the potential of AI to enhance the quality and accessibility of higher education.
