Helping Canadian universities excel through IT innovation
CUCCIO is Canada’s community of information technology leaders in higher education, working together to help Canadian universities excel through the innovative and effective use of IT. Incorporated in 2006, CUCCIO is the result of almost 40 years of information-sharing, collaboration, knowledge creation and advocacy among provincial and regional associations of IT leaders in post-secondary education. Today, CUCCIO is a non-profit, member-funded corporation representing more than 50 universities Canada-wide, who collectively serve over 90% of Canada’s university students.
“It’s hard to put a dollar value on the value CUCCIO brings, but the return on investment has been way beyond the overhead in terms of participation. Being able to interact with and gain insights from that community is huge. It’s hard for me to imagine how to operate in isolation from that community. It’s so beneficial just to be able to ask questions and get very healthy responses that really help move things forward.”
