Welcome

This Group is a split-off of the Drupal Education Group and aims ito deal with issues and challenges that are unique to Drupal in post-secondary academic environments.

Higher Ed Summit @ NYC Camp

I'm a little late in getting this out there, but felt like it still made sense to post NYC Camp will be hosting their annual Higher Education Summit on April 11th.

More details can be found at:
