Sessions, events, and networking designed for today’s Mobile-Ready Campus

Students today arrive on campus with an entirely different set of expectations than generations before them. Students now expect institutions to provide them with the same kind of mobile and digital experience they have in their personal lives – learning, researching, collaborating and connecting with their peers, instructors and communities on any device, anywhere, anytime.

This has forced institutions to look at new technologies and learn new techniques – to modernize and rethink their strategies to engage students, enhance the learning experience and improve outcomes for student success.

At Citrix Synergy 2016, you’ll hear from some of the most forward-thinking thought leaders in education; the people who are leading the digital transformation on their campuses. You’ll learn how they are leveraging Citrix virtualization and cloud technologies to help transform educational models and business processes to deliver new services and innovations to their students and faculty.

As you are building your Citrix Synergy agenda, be sure to add these to your schedule!
