C-COLO Leadership

The Council for Chief Online Learning Officers (C-COLO) and its members are focused on leveraging the strategic potential of online learning to transform institutions of higher education and society. Each UPCEA member institution has the opportunity to identify a chief online learning officer—the decision-maker for an online enterprise, whether at the unit, college, or institutional level—to represent them on C-COLO. Institutional delegates to C-COLO are able to attend the annual Online Leadership Roundtable convening event, and participate in other exclusive content hosted by C-COLO.

The Council for Chief Online Learning Officers is led by the C-COLO Leadership, a volunteer group made up of C-COLO delegates.
