"This is my 10th year in SIGUCCS and at the fall conference. 10 years ago, an idea that I had from a presentation, sparked a student staff program in my department which has evolved into an amazing training and work experience opportunity for over 300 students so far. I am still amazed at how one small idea can really make a difference and open up new opportunities. My SIGUCCS colleagues are an amazing, talented, creative and inspiring group and I look forward to all of the new "sparks" that fly each fall."

~ Karen McRitchie, SIGUCCS Tutorial Chair and 2009 Fall Conference Co-Chair


"SIGUCCS conferences were always a place where I would not only learn technological solutions but also ideas of how to deploy technology in a friendly and meaningful way in a higher education. I always came back rejuvenated. with more energy and wanted to share the excitement with my colleagues back home."

~ Jennifer Fajman, former SIGUCCS Board member and chair, Penny Crane Award Recipient 2006

SIGUCCS Conferences

ACM SIGUCCS sponsors an annual conference each fall (October or November). This event starts with a Management Symposium and is followed by a Service and Support Conference.

The Management Symposium provides a place for IT leaders and future leaders from colleges and universities to gather and address current challenges facing them and their institutions.

Professionals involved in end-user information technology support gather at the Service and Support Conference to discuss and learn about supporting and delivering services to the educational community. Presenters at this conference publish & present a professional paper. Join SIGUCCS to obtain access to the ACM Digital Library to view an archive of papers presented during the Service and Support Conference.

Ongoing communication to allow networking in between conferences is available through two discussion lists and the SIGUCCS online community. SIGUCCS webinars are also a great way to "stay connected" between conferences and experience some of the opportunities that are provided through the conferences.
