The Association for College and University Technology Advancement (ACUTA) and Association of Colleges and University Housing Officers-International (ACUHO-I) present research findings from the 2017 ACUTA/ACUHO-I State of ResNet Study. This is the sixth installment of a comprehensive tracking study to measure the pulse of ResNet practices and policies in higher education in order to provide year-over-year analysis and report on the evolution of certain trends.
Again this year, the study has broadened its opinion sources among three significant audiences - Higher Education IT Leaders, Housing Officers, and Business Officers. This research, which includes data from over 320 higher education institutions, is designed to help administrators and business officers address such issues as the unprecedented growth in bandwidth and connectivity demands, budget restrictions, policy considerations, staffing, and support. These insights will make it possible for colleges and universities to better meet the challenges of today while fostering greater collaboration that is needed to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
