PESC established International Ambassadors 
in 2018 after partnership with the Groningen Declaration Network (GDN).  International PESC Ambassadors were established for leaders from PESC Members who also attend the Annual GDN Meetings held around the world.  With 15 International PESC Ambassadors at the last Annual GDN Meeting in Paris, PESC was very well represented & our mission resonated clearly.

PESC MEMBERS identify,  develop, openly share and promote collaborative data solutions that employ automated, reusable and sustainable technologies in order to improve institutional performance, to improve student service delivery, and improve overall digital and electronic connectivity between stakeholders. 


In this spirit and in support of the mission, PESC provides free online access, without charge, to PESC APPROVED STANDARDSand all technical information on this website for the education community & general public.


ANNUAL PESC MEMBER DUES, as the principal source of funding, support all open data exchange standards & technical specifications development, issuance and maintenance of open PESC APPROVED STANDARDS; all official PESC communications and outreach activities; and PESC events & industry meetings.  


Please consider joining PESC as  MEMBERor SPONSOR and join your colleagues in PESC's mission to raise the entire education domain to a new standard of interoperability!​​


​Some colleges and universities support PESC for a short time or when there is development they wish to support.  Other organizations like AACRAO, ACT, College Board and Ellucian have been solid PESC Members consistently for 20 years.

Whether for a short period or not, your support of PESC directly impacts your students, learners, colleges and universities and enables all  others to access PESC APPROVED STANDARDS, TECHNOLOGY & SERVICES and migrate toward digital mobility.



Why PESC?


PESC Members work together through PESC in 'co-opetition' 
(cooperation among competitors)

to identify current initiatives and emerging best practices

impacting technology and standards and to develop innovative,

collaborative solutions that employ automated, reusable

and sustainable systems & technologies.

PESC Members propose and participate

in PESC Groups and Initiatives and

convene at April and October Data Summits.


PESC MEMBERS  believe that fostering open, transparent collaboration across educational communities to solve common industry-shared problems brings much needed clarity and coherence to the education eco-system.


PESC TECHNOLOGY  is open, community-sourced & driven by PESC serving as an incubator to pilot and launch data standards using an open, transparent, collaborative process (based on a voluntary consensus model); and serving as an open, data standards-development and open, data standards-setting body governing resource mapping and maintenance of education eco-system schemas, taxonomies and shared code sets in various technologies (e.g. EDI, XML, PDF, JSON, etc.).​

As a  
PESC MEMBER,  
your organization helps drive this development providing an equal voice and stake in the strategic direction and development of education technology.​​


From Ontario to Indiana, to Credentials Solutions, National Student Clearinghouse and Parchment (among many others), to Stanford University and all 114 of the California Community Colleges (which alone serves 2.1 million students), to all of financial aid - ALL USERS of PESC APPROVED STANDARDS- PESC is fulfilling its vision of a digital domain.
