See You at Educause!
From Community Sprints to World Tours and everything in between, we get excited about all of the opportunities to learn from, ideate with, and listen to the higher ed community throughout the year!
From October 30 to November 2, we’re going to be at the 2018 Educause Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado and we want to see you! Coming off an amazing Dreamforce experience in September, where we were able to hear about and highlight all of the innovation happening in higher ed, we’re so excited to continue the conversation of transformation at this year’s Educause. We can’t wait to talk with all of you about the trailblazing work you’re already doing and the realm of possibility. This inspirational community never ceases to amaze us!
