HERUG 2020

The 23rd International SAP HERUG Conference


The University of Toronto is pleased to host the SAP Higher Education and Research User Group (HERUG) Conference on June 8, 9 and 10, 2020.  As a committed HERUG member, we are proud to welcome our higher education and research colleagues to Toronto, Canada to share experiences and network.

The theme for this 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 to 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. 

Please stay tuned for more details!
