HEUG / Alliance

About the Higher Education User Group

The Higher Education User Group (HEUG) is an international organization consisting of higher education institutions that use application software from the Oracle Corporation.  Its two overarching goals are to facilitate sharing of ideas, information and experiences among its members, and to provide a unified and effective voice to Oracle on all issues involving the use of Oracle application software in the higher education community.

The HEUG represents hundreds of member institutions and thousands of individuals across the globe. It includes a wide range of institutions, from community colleges, to small liberal arts colleges, to huge research universities and even entire state university systems. It includes public and private institutions and (as associate members) for-profit institutions.  Click here for more information about HEUG.
