Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups (or SIGs) are one of the CUCCIO-supported mechanisms aimed at building community among our member’s institutions and within specific communities of interest.

A SIG may be initiated simply to share information or best practices via a listserv (as is the case with our Teaching and Learning Technologies SIG), or to be more proactive in addressing shared challenges through monthly conference calls and face-to-face meetings (as is the Security SIG’s model).

SIGs typically self-form and, over time, develop their structure and processes to best suit their needs, including the selection of a chair (or co-chairs) or information moderators who will coordinate the group’s activities, including facilitating discussions and defining desired outcomes and potential deliverables.  SIG members often take advantage of our national conference CANAHEIT to meet in person.

There are currently a number of SIGs in various states of operation and addressing a variety of topics including:

  • IT and IS Security
  • Teaching and Learning Technologies
  • Portfolio and Project Management
  • Portals and Portal Technologies
  • Business Analysis
  • Disaster Recovery
  • PCI Compliance
  • Applications Management
