“WCET is unparalleled as a resource for policy analysis impacting online education, and the relationships I have built with colleagues through the organization have been incredible. I encourage anyone looking to build their expertise or professional relationships to get involved.”

Jory Hadsell, Vice Chancellor and CIO, Technology, Foothill-De Anza Community College District

So often I find myself sharing something I have learned through my WCET network — a clear sign of the extraordinary value I find in this organization.”

“I’ve been a WCET member for years. What hooked me was the incredible in-depth analysis and synthesis of the changing authorization regulations in the early 2010s, but as the years have rolled by, it’s the network of kind, empathetic, and helpful colleagues with whom to collaborate and partner that has made this a must-have membership organization for me.”
