This year the meeting will be held on Tuesday the 31st of October. More details on exact times and venue will be published as we come closer to the event.

We have a tentative number of topics planned but wish to get feedback if there are anything else that needs to be on the agenda.

  • Update on CHEITA Benchmarking activity incl current focus
  • Update on 2017 CHEITA International Study Tour
  • Update on CAUDIT HE EA Commons / distribution of HE EA Reference Models
  • Update on Top Ten Topics

CHEITA Study tour

CHEITA is looking to conduct an international study tour to north-eastern USA coinciding with the EDUCAUSE 2017 Conference in Oct/Nov this year.

The EDUCAUSE conference is being held from 31 October 2017 to 3 November 2017, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – see – providing the opportunity to visit premier institutions (and potentially vendor campuses) in north eastern states/cities of e.g. Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, New York, Boston etc in the days immediately after the conference close.

Depending upon interest, participants could include CIOs (and their supervisors or immediate reports) from Australia, Canada, Europe, South Africa, the United Kingdom, the USA and other countries – giving you the opportunity to make connections and broaden your network.  Please note that we are looking to cap numbers at 30 in order to maximise the quality of your interactions.

If you are interested in participating in this study tour please email your CHEITA representative about your interest.
