Committees and Groups

Many Big Ten Academic Alliance groups convene on a regular basis and typically fall into one of three categories:

Executive Leadership:  These groups include senior leaders at Big Ten Academic Alliance member universities who govern and/or make investments in Big Ten Academic Alliance activities.

Program Management/Task Forces: These groups are typically convened by an executive leadership group to accomplish a particular analysis or to manage a Big Ten Academic Alliance project or program.

Peer Groups: These groups are typically self-organizing peers from member universities who get together (virtually and/or face-to-face) to share ideas and best practices.
