AAC&U-TV Daily Newscast to be
at 2008 Annual Meeting
AAC&U is pleased to announce a new feature of the Annual Meeting – a daily television news program that will be broadcast on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings during the meeting. AAC&U-TV was developed to help champion the value of a liberal education, shine a spotlight on how AAC&U members are advancing liberal education in local contexts, and provide a wider forum for the work featured at the Annual Meeting.
Each program will include interviews with some of the key speakers and educational leaders at the meeting, as well as news and views from the conference floor. The program will also include brief segments, filmed at AAC&U-member campuses, that explore innovative educational practices providing today’s students with the essential outcomes of a liberal education.
AAC&U-TV will be seen on a dedicated television channel in hotel rooms at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The programs can also be viewed online, with a new program webcast each evening and available online after the meeting, as well.

Ways to Participate in AAC&U-TV
For Institutions Interested in a Thought Leadership Film
There are still a few slots available for AAC&U member institutions to participate in AAC&U-TV. The Thought Leadership Films are short (5-minute) pre-recorded films that are sponsored (and paid for) by the colleges, universities, or organizations featured. A producer and camera crew will work onsite with you and others at your institution to interview key campus leaders and film the appropriate footage. HBL Media will also work with you during the editing process to ensure that the film accurately reflects the work of your institution.
The segment will be viewed by all participants of AAC&U’s Annual Meeting, as well as those who cannot attend the meeting. (AAC&U will promote ConferenceTV and the designated website to approximately 25,000 individuals.) All institutions sponsoring a Thought Leadership Film will receive a copy of the finished five-minute film for its own distribution and/or for streaming video (or download) on that institution’s website. The institution will also be given all footage taken in preparation for that film, which can then be reedited to fit other institutional needs.
For more information about participating in AAC&U, please contact Suzanne Hyers at AAC&U.
Additional Ways to participate in AAC&U-TV at the 2008 Annual Meeting
The Newsmaker Interview
The newsmaker interview is conducted onsite at the January meeting and centers on a “hot topic” or issue pertaining to the work of an individual or his/her institution or organization. HBL Media will work with the newsmaker to help develop the focus of the interview and ensure that it is positioned as a leadership piece within AAC&U-TV’s evening program. This is a 3-minute interview, which can be edited with photos or B-Roll provided by the individual. HBL Media will provide a copy of this segment on DVD for reproduction and future use by the individual or institution. More information about the Newsmaker Interview is available from Suzanne Hyers at AAC&U.
The sponsor profile is available to the publishers, organizations, and companies that are sponsoring the 2008 Annual Meeting. The AAC&U-TV reporter will interview the sponsor, in a newsworthy format, to converse about the company and its services or products. These Profiles encourage additional participation with sponsors at the meeting itself, while enabling sponsors to reach a larger audience through AAC&U-TV’s online programs, promoted to more than 25,000 academic administrators, faculty members, and other educational leaders. HBL Media will provide a copy of this segment on DVD for reproduction and future use by the sponsor. More information about the Sponsor Profile is available from Suzanne Hyers at AAC&U.
