TIER Campus Success Program Blogfest
The TIER Campus Success Program includes 10 schools working together to adopt one or more software components that comprise the TIER suite (Shibboleth, Grouper, COmanage, and midPoint). As part of their commitment to creating information to help other organizations considering adoption, campus members periodically create blog posts to describe their work.
