Report from the 2018 EDUCAUSE Task Force on Digital Transformation


In 2018, EDUCAUSE convened a group of nine higher ed leaders to discuss what digital transformation (Dx) means to higher education and to consider what EDUCAUSE should do to help members understand and embrace Dx in a way that positions them to provide leadership for their own institutional efforts in this evolution. The task force discussed the role of Dx in higher education with two goals in mind:

  • Goal 1: Develop a definition of digital transformation appropriate to higher education that can be used across EDUCAUSE programs and offerings.
  • Goal 2: Issue recommendations for how EDUCAUSE can help its members understand the importance of digital transformation and position their institutions to move forward with it in areas such as the IT organization and leadership, workforce and staffing, and analytics.
