(Participate in Next Year's Survey)
ACUTA is pleased to announce the publication if its fourth annual State of ResNet Report that represents continued partnerships with NACUBO and ACUHO-I. The 2015 report is a comprehensive survey designed to measure the broad variation in practice and policy within higher education and lay the groundwork for long-term trend analysis and benchmarking. For the fourth year, the study targets all higher-education institutions in the United States with on-campus residential housing, focusing on IT and business issues affecting the residential student network.
In support of its mission, ACUTA again contracted with Forward Analytics, a nationally-recognized market research firm, to design and conduct this study during December 2014 and January 2015. The ACUTA/NACUBO/ACUHO-I ResNet study was conducted online and targeted higher-education IT leaders or persons responsible for ResNet finance and infrastructure. A total of 550 surveys were completed, representing 465 universities or colleges (some institutions had multiple respondents) within a sample population of 1,700 U.S. higher-education institutions determined to have provided on-campus housing for students.
Many thanks to ACUTA, NACUBO and ACUHO-I members who took the time to respond to this survey, allowing us to present an up-to-the-minute picture of residential networks.
