Digital transformation
is the future of higher education.

But the future doesn’t just happen. It’s the result of a process—one that requires strong leadership and a commitment to institutional change to be successful. We’re here to help you lead your team through the digital transformation (Dx) journey.

Your path to Dx starts here.

We take you through the Dx journey in three phases. Using our resources, you’ll be able to learn about Dx, create a plan for your institution, and put that plan into action.

Phase 1


Understand what digital transformation means for higher education and for your institution. We’ll start with definitions and identify signs that Dx may already be happening at your institution.

Phase 2


Prepare for Dx by assessing your institution’s capabilities, setting goals, developing a roadmap, and getting colleagues across campus excited to be part of institutional change.

Phase 3


Put your plans into action by launching strategic initiatives that will make your institution more flexible, responsive, and resilient. Evaluate the impact and adjust course accordingly.
