2017 Conference:
The Final Frontier

Who Are We?

NERDug is a loosely organized body helping those in New England, New York, nearby Canada and other surrounding areas to share ideas and foster growth using Ellucian's software products.

NERDug has hosted attendees from New England, New York, New Jersey and beyond. We have always welcomed and encouraged Ellucian Users from outside the region to attend and present at the annual NERDug Conference.

Executive Board

In 2008 NERDug became the first Regional Datatel Users' Group to legally form. Officially recognized as "NERDug, Inc.", we are a class C corporation registered in the state of Vermont. We have officers elected by the membership as well as a larger group of individuals work to coordinate the efforts of NERDug and assure it's life in the future. Please feel free to contact them with ideas or comments about NERDug.
