Making Cross-Campus, Interinstitutional Collaborations Work

Tuesday, March 27 | 9:30AM–10:15AM | Zurich F
Session Type: Professional Development
Due to increased requirements by federal funding agencies to manage, store, archive, and make accessible research data, managing data storage and services is a growing university challenge that requires creative collaboration among departments. This is also a challenge that lends itself well to leveraging the diverse knowledge and expertise found interinstitutionally among peer institutions. At the request of their provosts, the CIOs of the CIC (Big Ten universities plus University of Chicago), together with their campus colleagues in the libraries and the senior research offices, have formed a unique collaboration that's successfully tackling this complex challenge.
