Spring 2017 Consulting Summit: April 20th

Consultee panel at October 2016 summit

The next Consulting Summit -- a partnership between the D-Lab, Educational Technology Services (ETS), the Library, and Research IT -- will be held on April 20th from 10 - 2:15 at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), in 190 Doe Library.

Consulting Summit meetings to date have provided a valuable opportunity to build a community across organizational divides. By focusing on the Reimagining IT project and plan at this month's meeting, we'll be addressing budgetary pressures that are currently requiring all campus organizations to scrutinize both their independent work and their collaborations, to ensure we're providing strategic value to the university. 

Here's our agenda for the day:
