Town Hall Webinar - Recap

Did you have the opportunity to attend the HEUG President Town Hall webinar? The goal of the Town Hall meetings is to provide more transparency into what the Board of Directors and what the HEUG is doing in the upcoming year. The Board will work to continue to provide quality information, education and advocacy to all members. 

Below is a brief recap of the topics that were discussed during the presentation:

Foundational Core Values

  • Leadership: Constantly work to create, establish, organize and have influence on events, initiatives and programs to enhance or maximize the HEUG’s mission.
  • Partnership: Create, maintain and strengthen partnerships with organizations and individuals in the higher education community and those who provide products and services in support of the HEUG mission.
  • Networking & Sharing: Through an open exchange of information, ideas and learned experiences we strive to gather as a community in support of education, by supporting and strengthening our individual and collective organizations locally, nationally and globally.
  • Communication: We constantly utilize our opportunity to be transparent and disseminate information. Through our collective experiences and partnerships, we are able to identify and strengthen our products, processes and organizations by being aware and making use of a set of constantly evolving communication methods.
