SNow Higher Education Group - Mailing List
This mailing list is for ServiceNow customers or potential customers who are members of higher education institutions. There are many collaborative resources available for ServiceNow customers, for ITIL/ITSM, and for higher education, but none specifically in the space that crosses all three. In that context Karen Van Dusen (Carnegie Mellon University) and Hillary Rosenfeld (Boston University) maintain this list for anyone who is a ServiceNow customer and in higher education. Topics typically range from ServiceNow implementation and adoption strategies in higher ed to networking planning for events like ServiceNow's Knowledge conferences.
