This group was formed out of a meeting of minds at DrupalCon San Francisco 2010. The idea is to promote Drupal adoption on public California University campuses. This group overlaps with the education groups available, but the mission is different. This group is specifically focused around evangelizing for Drupal adoption on California University campuses and sharing available resources among those campuses.
This is an especially important time for promoting Drupal as both the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems are looking towards moving IT Services into cloud services. These offices are not yet aware of the adoption rate and impact of Drupal on campuses state-wide and a group is needed to both evangelize/advertise that fact and also to promote further adoption on campuses.
When posting to this group, please also cross-post (just check another checkbox) anything that is not California specific to the Higher Education group as well.
The Center for African Studies is developing a website for the MasterCard Foundation Scholarship program and needs a freelance themer/designer.

DrupalCamp Sacramento, inspired by the BarCamp events, is a medium sized gathering where people discuss and learn about Drupal, an open-source content management system that is powering more and more of the web every year. Come to share ideas, get involved in the community, and meet in person the people you see so often online!
The Sacramento Drupal Users Group is pleased to announce the 2nd annual DrupalCamp Sacramento.
This highly-anticipated event will be two days full of sessions, BoFs, code sprinting, and engagement, with our special keynote speaker Chris Shattuck.
Registration is now open and session proposals are now being accepted!
CSU Bakersfield has retained a web design firm to redo our site. They are proposing that we use a customized Drupal implementation. Some on campus are not in favor of going with an open-source solution and are instead interested in exploring Hannon Hill's product - I believe it's because several other CSUs are using Hannon Hill, and they feel we will get better support, training, etc, etc. I'm wondering if anyone can chime in on either product and if anyone has used either for their entire university/college site. What are the pros and cons to each?
Thanks in advance for the help.
Retaining students in higher education is a big challenge as colleges and universities struggle to maintain a high level of customer service in the face of tightening budgets and larger student populations. We at Cal State Monterey Bay are no different, and have been working on a Drupal install profile to help make our faculty, advisors, and support staff more efficient when working with students.Read more

We are expecting to release this project as an open-source install profile after we've tested it on our campus, and we hope that interested firms are equally excited to do work that will benefit both our campus and other universities and colleges as well.Read more
I recently revisited an old pet project of mine looking at benchmarking and comparing higher education sites. It is obviously a work in progress, but it is shaping up fairly well at this stage and I'm getting to a point where I'd like to secure some feedback. If 'ya get a chance, please take a look and let me know what you think. It's based on D7, represents around 3,200 US higher ed sites, and has a range of data to sift through.
Join us August 6-7, 2011 for DrupalCamp LA, on the campus of the University of California, Irvine. I'll be hosting a Higher-Ed BoF, probably on Saturday. It's free to attend. More info at: http://2011.drupalcampla.com
