Welcome our THREE new HESS Consortium Board
HESS Webinars for 2020
This will be the final group interest discussion before our planning group begins our feasibility study of a shared ERP operations / services model for our HESS institutions. We will be researching grant funding options to defray the implementation and migration costs of moving to a single, affordable and cloud-native solution together. We will also be doing research into how we can share our staff resources among our schools to collaborate and save money and time in our operations.

The Higher Education Systems & Services Consortium or "The HESS Consortium" is a 501c3 non-profit, membership-run organization. The HESS Consortium is focused on collectively lowering costs and increasing collaboration between specifically private colleges and universities in the area of administrative systems and services.
The HESS Consortium is made up of chief financial officers, chief information officers as well as technology and finance directors in a diverse group of schools committed to finding efficiencies and cost savings by working with other like-minded institutions. Together, we realize that, throughout the country, private college/university Chief Information/Technology Officers (CIO) and Chief Business Officers (CBO) are mutually charged with providing mission critical administrative services in an environment of almost flat, if not decreasing, net revenues. We are asked to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of administrative software services and related information technology to meet the increasing needs of diverse users while minimizing the resources used.
Together, we are working in lockstep with our Presidents to determine how our tasks can best be accomplished, what marketplace options may be available to better meet out needs, and what innovative solutions are being implemented in our sector across the country. One thing is clear. Together, we are stronger. Learn more about our goals and how to join the HESS Consortium by clicking here.
