Welcome to HERUG 2021. The University of Toronto is excited to be your virtual host for this year’s conference as we work to keep our community connected and learning through these unpreceded times. Please visit our Agenda and Speakers pages to learn about this year’s dynamic content.

This year’s conference will be hosted using the Hopin Web Conferencing platform in order to provide all attendees with the best experience possible. Information and FAQ on how to take advantage of this virtual experience have been posted to this website.

The last 12 months have been extremely challenging for all of us and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of the HERUG International Programming Committee below for their help as we have pivoted and re-planned many aspects of this conference to meet a new online format.

About HERUG 2021

The University of Toronto is pleased to host the SAP Higher Education and Research User Group (HERUG) Conference in spring 2021. The theme for next year’s conference is “Innovative Solutions for the Intelligent University,” a tribute to the important and unique role played by the HERUG community in sharing new ideas and solutions, which advance and strengthen our collective mission of serving the public good through teaching and research. Over the past several years, many of our institutions have experienced tremendous change, not only due to advances in SAP and related technologies but because the very nature of higher education is changing rapidly. Institutions are innovating in response – whether this is designing a new employee experience to attract the best talent, automating business processes to streamline financial or research operations, or obtaining insights into student applications and retention, we all have stories to share in meeting these new challenges and the University of Toronto is excited to play a role in accelerating these conversations at this year’s conference.
