Ithaka S+R is launching a two year initiative, Making AI Generative for Higher Education, partnering with 18 major universities to "assess the immediate and emerging AI applications most likely to impact teaching, learning, and research and explore the long-term needs of institutions, instructors, and scholars as they navigate this environment."

Their announcement notes three project phases with public reporting over the course of 2023-2024-2025.

Initially, the working participants will begin by reviewing the "areas of university activity most affected by this emerging technology"  An assessment exercise will be developed "to gauge the readiness of their campuses to productively leverage generative AI technologies for teaching and research purposes". 

A May 24 blog post provides greater details on the project. An interesting range of institutions have committed to participation, including Carnegie-Mellon, Stony Brook University, Duke, Princeton, and the University of North Texas.
