2019 Campus Technology Impact Awards: Call for Entries

Campus Technology Impact Awards 2019

Have you made your mark on the practice of technology in higher education? We want to know about it! The 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. Our goal is to highlight projects both cutting-edge and well established, 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, 2019.

Application deadline: April 15.
