The RPA Initiative at George Mason University recently announced the establishment of the Virginia Academic Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Community of Practice (CoP) to support the commonwealth’s colleges and universities improve effectiveness, efficiency, and student experiences through the adoption of software automation. The VA Academic RPA CoP is meant to help institutions of higher learning become familiar with software automation and provide opportunities to collaborate across the commonwealth to enhance student experiences.
The RPA CoP is funded in part by a grant from 4-VA@Mason, a statewide initiative designed to improve efficiencies in higher education and research and promote collaborations among partner schools.
“Bringing innovative thinking to our academic partners across the commonwealth is the hallmark of 4-VA. We believe that the Academic RPA CoP will deliver important resources, not only saving money for participating institutions, but also creating a higher level of quality control and, ultimately, enrich the student experience. We are thankful for the early support from leaders of the emerging RPA private sector who want to help improve higher education and contain costs so every Virginian has the ability to attend college.”Dorin Munteanu, co-founder of the RPA Initiative at GMU
