Danielle Miriam Cooper, Dylan Ruediger, and Roger C. Schonfeld write the following in “Making AI Generative for Higher Education” for Ithaka S+R:

Making AI Generative for Higher Education will launch in Fall 2023. If your institution is interested in participating, please send an immediate expression of interest to Danielle Cooper (firstname.lastname@example.org).
