The 2017 CHEITA Study Tour will visit a number of institutions located on the east coast of the USA. This is don in partnership with our international members in Canada, the UK, Europe, South Africa and the 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.

Participants could include CIOs (and their supervisors or immediate reports) from these 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. Interest in participating should be noted to your individual organisation.
