When we conducted our first survey around digital priorities in Higher Education in 2018, we learned that higher education institutions had limited budgets to support digital experience initiatives. This year, the same story is true with almost 48% saying budgets are staying the same as last year. Just because budgets aren't increasing, doesn't mean colleges and universities aren't working hard to create engaging experiences for students, prospective students, and other key audiences. Find out what top colleges and universities said about how they're building great web experiences in 2019.

Web professionals must navigate managing their public website, maintaining their Student Portal, and keeping up with all of the twists and turns brought about by data privacy laws and web accessibility standards.

In our Digital Priorities Survey for Higher Education, we asked hundreds of schools what they thought about student portals, what type of portal they planned to implement, and some of the challenges they face. Here's what they had to say...
