President & Chairman, Board of Directors
The Internet2 community has announced a very aggressive process for developing a new strategic vision for national networking in support of the broad academic mission– research, teaching, engagement, and economic development. The group’s vision is of a community-driven organization working in close partnership with regionals, universities, vendors, and other innovators. As part of this process, the new Internet2 advisory councils are meeting with various community segments to get their perspectives both on the national vision broadly and on the critical priorities for each of the community segments. This session will start with an overview of the strategic planning process and the vision for a community-driven process and identify what is being said by the community thus far about key goals and the developing mission. The bulk of the session will be set aside for a dialog with the attendees, both critiquing and commenting on what is presented and identifying unique or special needs of the CNI community.
