It's our pleasure to announce the 2012 Campus Technology Innovators: These IT leaders have deployed extraordinary technology solutions to meet campus challenges. We also recognize the vendors and products involved in making these innovative projects a success.


Higher One is the official sponsor of the 2012 CT Innovators Awards.

Out of 354 total entries, we had 10 winners in five categories: Teaching and Learning; Leadership, Governance, and Policy; Student Systems and Services; Administrative Systems; and IT Infrastructure and Systems. Although we did receive submissions in the Education Futurists category, the judges elected not to name a winner this year.

We heartily thank the members of our Innovators Judging Committee (see "Meet the Judges," below), as well as all who submitted nominations this year.

To read our profiles of this year's award winners, see the navigation bar at the top left of this page.

Meet the Judges

As part of the evaluation process for the Campus Technology Innovators award program, entries were reviewed by our Innovators Judging Committee, a group of higher ed tech leaders, many of whom are former Innovators themselves. Final winners were chosen by our team of editors.
