During July 2013, Github sponsored a Campus Data Summit, which brought together student leaders from Columbia, Penn, Rutgers, CMU, Duke and Waterloo who had worked on campus data initiatives at their alma maters. Over the course of a weekend, we shared our experiences and explored ways for our organizations to collaborate.

Campus Data was created as a collaboration from the July 2013 summit. The Campus Data Guidebook is a living document that brings together anecdotes and best practices from existing organizations.
