About HEUG Central - Illinois 2023

The Higher Education Users Group (HEUG) Central - Illinois region is excited to announce that we will be in person to Rediscover, Reconnect and Rejuvenate the future of our systems at HEUG Central - Illinois, October 2-3, 2023. For many institutions, our ERP systems have a decade of experience. Our program will cater to how we ensure we are delivering first-class services to our students and staff as well as what we have learned to inspire others and what pitfalls we can help prevent in the future. As always, HEUG Central - Illinois will continue to be a great opportunity to learn, network and share best practices with your colleagues from other institutions throughout the central region. At the same time, you may wish to take the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Oak Brook.
