A single, unified technology community for B.C.'s higher education & research sector
BCNET is the only cooperative of CIOs and technology leaders for information technology services in B.C.'s higher education and research community. Through community collaborations, our members discuss technology challenges and solutions and advance the development of IT services.
We are built on the leadership and IT expertise of our members who run, lead and own (in part) our organization. Representatives from our members provide technological expertise and advice to the Board, and lead the direction and creation of our services by participating in numerous committees and working groups.
With a 25-year track record of managing the Advanced Network, BCNET has successfully fostered a cooperative technology community and an environment of mutual trust, understanding and respect. For over two decades, our members have been coming together to share technology challenges and solutions.
As we continue to evolve our service offerings, our shared success depends on our members—new and existing. We support and foster their involvement in our governance, committees and working groups.
