DHESC developed the first-ever digital documentation of higher education assets & resources voluntarily-disclosed by select DHESC Member Institutions.  It is organized as follows:

  • By Category: similar assets and resources sorted by grouping
  • By School: assets and resources of a particular college or university

Six Member Institutions contributed their assets & resources to this 2021 edition, and others may elect to be included in the future.  Content is subject to change as institutions grow and update their Community Contacts.
