Technology Collaborations

Teaching, learning, and research in higher education are becoming increasingly collaborative. The CIC Chief Information Officers are pioneering technology that makes the CIC the best and easiest place to collaborate in higher education.  This environment includes an interconnected high speed fiber network, online resources and applications that are securely and easily shared across the CIC, and a trusted place to explore leading-edge technologies which advance the academic and research missions of our universities.
