Unizin Becomes Independent Incorporated Nonprofit
Consortium will now operate outside of Internet2
WASHINGTON, DC, May 3, 2016--Unizin recently announced it has become an independent incorporated nonprofit organization. Previously, Unizin has incubated as an unincorporated association within Internet2 guided initially by four Internet2 member universities and has subsequently grown to 11 founding campuses, plus the State University System of Florida. Unizin, Ltd. now launched with direct responsibility for all product, service, legal, financial and human resources.
“Internet2 strives to support the innovation and advancement to benefit all of higher education. When our member institutions stepped forward with the idea for Unizin, we were pleased to offer support for the effort and its great to see Unizin has been such a success,” said Shel Waggener, Internet2, senior vice president and Unizin board member. “Working in concert with one another from the on-set has been extremely rewarding and proof that collaboration in the higher ed community can truly transform technology and ultimately the teaching and learning digital experience.”
