This March, the University of Colorado will have more presenters than any other university in the nation at the Higher Education User Group (HEUG) Alliance international conference, from March 23-25 in Salt Lake City. Hosted by CU’s primary enterprise application provider, Oracle, the three-day conference brings together over 3,500 attendees, 100 vendors and 350 sessions.
Each year, CU represents itself as a leader in high education technology by presenting our expertise and best practices in implementing and operating Oracle’s range of PeopleSoft and other applications.
Associate Vice President and CIO of UIS Scott Munson said, “The HEUG represents over 1,000 institutions across six continents. Allowing our people to attend is an invaluable networking and educational opportunity to better serve CU and others. Having the honor of presenting to such a large and diverse community is just one more way where CU is visible as a leader in higher education. I’m incredibly proud of our people and CU’s reputation continues to grow because of them.”
The University of Colorado has over 20 presenters represented at this conference, with 14 presenters from UIS. Presentations are offered across nearly all Alliance tracks, with topics ranging from automating payroll, tuition calculations, fluid security, HCM, PeopleSoft deployment and more.
“The conference is important for a number of reasons. The ability to network and share ideas with other institutions using similar technical solutions is No. 1 on that list. By presenting at the conference, I am able to give back to other schools and contribute to the overall value of the conference for the broader HEUG community. Presenting also provides positive exposure for CU as well as for me as an individual,” said John Hanna, Student Financials Application Manager and fifth time presenter at HEUG.
Below are the different tracks and presentations from all UIS presenters:
