The Power of Drupal in Higher Education

In recent years, there has been an explosion in the adoption of Drupal at colleges and universities around the world. The benefits of using Drupal have been substantial and include increased site security and uptime, better reliability and scalability, and lower total cost of ownership - all while delivering engaging web experiences that attract students and supporters.

Whether you use Drupal, or are considering using Drupal, you will not want to miss this opportunity to join your peers for a day of presentations and discussion about Drupal. Hear from presenters from local schools engaged in cutting-edge Drupal development and learn from their work, make connections, and get inspired for the coming school year.
