Event Details

As we approach our 50th year as an association whose members study higher education, and as we move to enact our association’s strategic goals, it’s fitting to take time to examine the many political forces and authorities that bear upon contemporary higher education. Challenges to higher education by social, political, and economic forces have always been a staple feature of the history of higher education, and as researchers, we have made empirical how those politics have impacted the purposes and practices of higher education. 

At our 2024 annual conference, let’s consider, debate, and examine the many different ways in which political forces have and will engineer higher education’s purposes and practices. How can our empirical scrutiny address political forces that impact how we educate and serve students; or how we protect academic freedom or the livelihood of staff; or how we can inform legislation on access, affordability, and research integrity? And unquestionably, much, much more.

  • Preparing educators to design, assess, and implement global learning;
  • Focusing on global engagement in local and international settings;

Teaching Students to Think, Create, Innovate, Learn, and Adapt for an Age of Adversity and AI

In the wake of the pandemic, adversity, and the rise in automation, students are anxious about their future. A 2023 Junior Achievement Survey found 66 percent of teens are anxious about finding a job in the future due to artificial intelligence. A 2023 Future of Jobs Report by the World Economic Forum found that companies expect that 42% of their business tasks will be automated and expect to eliminate 83 million positions due to automation by 2027. The Jobs Report also found that analytical and creative thinking will be the most important skills needed by workers in 2023, along with resilience, flexibility and agility, curiosity, and lifelong learning. Brain and psychological research has discovered these skills can be taught and that being resilient is important for both creativity and curiosity. Cognitive Scientist Scott Barry Kaufman has found that adversity and trauma can lead to creative growth and that persistence and curiosity can predict creative achievement.

This interdisciplinary conference will bring neuroscientists, psychologists, researchers, and educators together to explore the science of our unique brains; what makes us different from machines; and how to develop our human skills, creativity, talents, and potential to compete in an automation age. Discover ways to promote different kinds of thinking and smarts; creativity and innovation; curiosity; resilience; agility and adaptability; and life-long learning. Discover ways to create a more human-focused education; appreciate the strengths of the gifted, less advantaged, and neurodiverse; and develop the skills and potential in all students for school, life, and future job success.

This conference will be presented as a hybrid conference. You can either attend in person or participate virtually. Click here for more details.

AAC&U Conference on Diversity, Equity, and Student Success
Washington, District of Columbia
Date: 3/21 - 3/24/2025
Event Details

For those of us who have dedicated our professional careers to supporting the success of all students and to valuing their identities as core to how we design our educational spaces, these are challenging times. We are trying to figure out how to be advocates in circumstances that seek to dismantle the very work that we hold as foundational for student access and success in higher education.

At AAC&U, we are, and will always be, committed to a vision of educational excellence that is grounded in equity and inclusion, that provides the learning all students need for success in an uncertain future, and that prepares our students to address the compelling issues we face as a democracy and as a global community. This vision will be at the heart of the 2025 Conference on Diversity, Equity, and Student Success.

We must acknowledge and be informed about the current realities that are challenging the creation and sustainability of educational environments that seek to achieve a sense of belonging for all students. Yet, we must remain focused on what we know is foundational for student success—from inclusive and expansive teaching and learning practices to evidence-based recruitment, retention, progression, and graduation practices; from student engagement to effective academic and social program supports; from data collection and analysis to address inequities in student and educator outcomes to faculty and staff diversity and professional development.

AAC&U’s 2025 Conference on Diversity, Equity, and Student Success will focus on these topics and more. The conversations at the conference will be open to educators, students, administrators, policymakers, and community members. We invite open dialogues that are civil and respectful and that promote the free exchange of ideas and practices that support diversity, equity, and student success. What Unites Us is our shared responsibility and commitment to develop systems, structures, and policies that are centered in equality and justice for all.

UPCEA Annual Conference
Denver, Colorado
Date: 3/24 - 3/26/2025
Event Details

Higher education is ever-evolving, and our work could not be more important than it is today. With a looming demographic cliff of traditional aged undergraduate students, institutions are looking to PCO units to provide revenue growth. We are charged with balancing that revenue growth by delivering on our mission to increase access and affordability to quality education; supporting our students in more holistic ways; actively building diverse, equitable and inclusive environments; and serving as  a vital partner within our local communities. This is both an exciting and challenging time as we navigate these sometimes conflicting goals.

This year’s conference will be centered on themes such as growing our impact through expanded access and innovation (focused especially on emerging topics such as AI), broadened inclusivity, policy advocacy, organizational transformation, engaging faculty and other critical partners, and building our individual networks.
