The Council of Australasian University Directors of Information Technology (CAUDIT) is an incorporated entity with membership drawn from all higher education and research institutions in Australia and New Zealand, plus those in the South Pacific, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea, as well as six major research organisations, UTS:Insearch and The College of Law. Members are represented by the most senior IT person in their organisation – generally their Chief Information Officer, Chief Digital Officer or Director, IT.
CAUDIT’s purpose is to support each other in leading the application of digital capabilities to transform education and research.
Three key values provide the focus for CAUDIT’s activities: connecting, enabling and challenging our members. Sharing and collaboration in a trusted environment is a fundamental benefit of CAUDIT membership.
CAUDIT provides networking opportunities, negotiates collective procurement agreements, provides professional development, undertakes benchmarking and fosters collaboration through the sharing of thought leadership, experiences and best practice among its members.
CAUDIT’s website supports these collaborative efforts by acting as both a knowledge base and a communications portal.
