Campus Computing Survey

Begun in 1990, The Campus Computing Project is the largest continuing study of the role of information technology in American higher education. The project’s national studies draw on qualitative and quantitative data to help inform faculty, campus administrators, and others interested in the use of information technology in American colleges and universities. Each year, some 600 two-and four-year public and private colleges and universities in the United States participate in the annual Campus Computing Survey, which focuses on campus planning and policy issues affecting the role of information technology in teaching, learning, and scholarship.
