Community Initiatives

Many of the activities of the Great Plains Network are accomplished through the mutual effort of individuals at our member institutions.  The GPN Executive Council has authorized three standing programs (and associated committees) to further these efforts.

Network Program

The purpose of the GPN Network Program is to provide networking services to members that wish to participate. The GPN Network Program Committee (NPC) is the managing entity of the GPN Network Program, operating with delegated authority from the GPN Executive Council. Learn more
