Welcome to HEDW !

The Higher Education Data Warehousing Forum (HEDW) welcomes you!

After the 2018 HEDW Conference…

We’d like to thank Michael Hansen and his team at Oregon State University for hosting the highly productive and enjoyable conference. The conference sessions were extremely well attended by over 340 participants, representing 200+ institutions. We also had 14 vendors presenting and demonstrating their solutions. From the keynote speech by Stephen Few (click here to see his presentation notes at the top of his profile) to the 62 presentations, panel discussions and special interest groups that were attended by many of your colleagues, the purpose of sharing information and communicating successes and lessons learned was met. We had over 80 people participate in the Fun Walk/Run, and we didn’t see any cougars!

We will be posting the presentations over the next several weeks beginning April 20th for you to be able to view and share with your teams. In addition, we will be launching our communications refresh strategy to bring more relevant content to you and enable webinar and blog opportunities. Take a look at some of the updated features, including a visualization of all the institutions and their toolsets, additional forum sections, and of course historical presentations and content from previous conferences.

Helping Education Do Well” is one of our mantras when describing the role of the HEDW and the more localized roles of IT and IR groups to support their institutions’ missions.
