The Higher Education Data Warehousing Forum is a network of higher education representatives dedicated to sharing knowledge about data management, best practices, data warehousing designs, institutional reporting strategies and more. HEDW members are technical developers, data access and reporting systems administrators, data custodians, institutional researchers and consumers of data representing a variety of internal university audiences. The annual conference sponsor is HEDW and is open to attendance by all interested parties employed in the focus area.

The host institution for the 2018 HEDW Forum Conference, Oregon State University, welcomes HEDW to Corvallis. OSU is the state’s Land Grant institution and is one of only two universities in the US to have Sea Grant, Space Grant and Sun Grant designations as well. Located in the Oregon State University Logo 4.2017beautiful Willamette Valley, OSU (Corvallis) is located within 60 minutes of the Pacific Ocean or the Cascades Mountain Range. Visitors to either location will discover an abundance of recreational opportunities.

The 2018 HEDW Forum Conference includes two and a half days of sessions and events with an optional Sunday Pre-Conference Training. Typical conference topics include data governance, BI strategy, data-informed culture, data quality, metadata and data definitions, data modeling, and project and program management, among other topics. The majority of sessions are prepared and presented by higher education peers, offering attendees a unique prospective.
