2017 Campus Technology Impact Awards: Call for Entries

Campus Technology Impact Awards

Have you made your mark on the practice of technology in higher education? We want to know about it! The new Campus Technology Impact Awards will honor exemplary colleges and universities that are making an extraordinary impact with technology on campus, doing important work in the service of teaching, learning, administration and operations. A successor to the 12-year history of our Innovators awards, the new award program serves to broaden the scope of that recognition, to include both cutting-edge and well established projects. Our goal is to highlight projects large and small that have had the greatest impact on the institution and on the higher education community. For each winning project, we will recognize the institution, the project lead and the technologies involved in making the initiative a success. The awards are open to both US and international entries, and multiple submissions are welcome. There is no entry fee. Winners will be announced on our website on Aug. 1. Deadline extended to April 21.

Your peers will help decide

Entries will be reviewed by our Impact Award Judging Committee of higher ed tech leaders. Final winners will be selected by our expert team of editors. Projects will be judged on their scale, uniqueness and impact, with a particular focus on the ways they are making a difference both to the institution and to higher education in general.

  • A special Impact Awards feature in the October issue of our digital magazine
