The most important decisions in academia are made by committee.
Committees drive higher ed. They connect scholars across departments, universities, fields, and cultures. Every important decision that builds knowledge in higher ed is a result of the collaborative effort of your professional service.
ByCommittee is designed to serve the committees that serve higher ed. It supports peer review by offering tools that streamline the logistics of collaboration, so scholars are better prepared to make the decisions that drive higher ed.
Higher ed works. ByCommittee makes that work easier.
