Each year, the Annual Meeting provides a broad, national framework and setting for approximately 2,000 attendees interested in higher education—including presidents, academic administrators, faculty members, policy leaders, and student affairs administrators—to gain a deeper understanding of current research, national trends, and innovative approaches to undergraduate education reform. Join us at our 2015 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
The Network for Academic Renewal offers an annual series of working conferences collaboratively designed and led by members of the higher education community. These conferences provide an opportunity for faculty, administrators, and student affairs educators to work together on educational changes to advance student success in the context of their institution's mission.
AAC&U Summer Institutes offer campus teams a time and place for sustained collaborative work on a project of importance to their campus. Current institutes include the Institute on General Education and Assessment, the Institute on High-Impact Practices and Student Success (formerly the Greater Expectations Institute), the Institute on Integrative Learning and the Departments, and the PKAL STEM Faculty Leadership Institute.
AAC&U is pleased to have a strong history of working with The Aspen Institute, whose mission is to foster enlightened leadership and open-minded dialogue to promote nonpartisan inquiry and an appreciation for timeless values. AAC&U and The Aspen Institute cosponsor two seminars each summer, both held at the Aspen Wye River campus in Maryland – the Wye Chief Academic Officers' Seminar: Citizenship in the Polity; and
the Wye Faculty Seminar: Citizenship in the Polity
