What we’re about

Higher Ed Technology Professionals brings together CIOs, CTOs, CFOs, Chief Academic Officers / Provosts from colleges and universities of all sizes in the New England area for networking, exchange of information, and collaborations. We have found that many Higher Ed C-level professionals are looking to build bridges of collaboration across their institutions. We aim to facilitate and foster truly meaningful conversations that create collaborations among our Meetup community.


Our group meets several times a year in-person, with remote opportunities available, to share experiences and advice on projects, and to discuss the new trends, disruptions, and evolution of Higher Education technology.

We would be pleased to hear about your specific challenges and quest for solutions. We also welcome your suggestions for discussions and events, as well as your preferences in the meeting formats. Don't hesitate to contact us or submit them to our Meetup discussion forum!

Note: Selling is not allowed during our events.
