SIGUCCS - Special Interest Group on University & College Computing Services


The ACM Special Interest Group on University and College Computing Services (SIGUCCS) is an association of professionals who support and manage the diverse aspects of information technology services at higher education institutions by providing professional development opportunities for our members and other individuals in the field. SIGUCCS focuses on issues surrounding the support, delivery and management of information technology services on college and university campuses. Our primary goal is to offer individual members professional development opportunities through a series of volunteer member organized annual conferences. SIGUCCS sponsors an annual conference in the fall, focused on front-line support services and senior and middle management issues.
