The TIER Program invites higher education institutions to submit a proposal to participate in the TIER Campus Success Program. Through this program, TIER will provide education and training, access to subject-matter experts to support adoption, and facilitate peer engagement with fellow adopters. The goals of the program include:
- assisting campuses in the successful deployment of one or more TIER-packaged components to address one or more campus need(s),
- accelerating local adoption of TIER components so the community has guidance more quickly,
- providing lessons learned about the local challenges and solutions and developing the first deployment guidance and advice for later adopters in the form of presentations, project reports, and locally produced TIER-related artifacts,
- informing the TIER program about issues encountered in production implementation and provide data for next steps regarding adoption support, technology development and feature set.
