Call for Presentations
We expect conference presenters and guest speakers will highlight successful collaborations across campuses, as well as collaborations within campuses at departmental, collegiate, and administrative levels. Presentations can be about common applications, shared services, joint development, communities of practice, infrastructure strategies, cost sharing, building IT organizations for collaboration, technical and information architecture to support collaboration, and other innovative efforts in the spirit of campus collaboration.
In addition, we will be exploring what it takes to have successful collaborations – shared vision to solve common problems, technology platforms that support differences in campus practices, and governance models that ensure sustainable resource and participation commitments. We’ll  also take a look at how collaboration helps our campuses find solutions in times of tight budget constraints.
Be an active participant at UCCSC 2012! Share your knowledge and experience. We encourage you to start preparing your presentation proposals now! Feel free to write to us at if you have questions or would like more information.  You can also contact your local campus UCCSC Ambassador.
