Less than a year ago, ChatGPT revolutionized the art of writing. This powerful tool unleashed a whirlwind of possibilities, transforming the way many people summarize, draft, and create different types of content, including emails, outlines, and even scholarly writing. The change has impacted every industry, including higher education. Generative artificial intelligence (AI) like ChatGPT and other AI technologies are powerful tools that can be used to improve academic research and writing, but it is important to use them responsibly and ethically. This presentation will include discussion of AI resources and tools that the academic community has created or adopted to proactively assist learners and researchers in navigating an increasingly AI-powered environment. The presentation will highlight examples from four institutions that have implemented initiatives such as AI literacy modules, AI tools for academic research and writing, and AI awareness campaigns.
