AAC&U offers a series of annual conferences that foster reflection, discovery, innovation, and action on critical and emerging issues in undergraduate education.

General Education, Pedagogy, and Assessment

During AAC&U’s Conference on General Education, Pedagogy, and Assessment, educators from all areas of higher education examine strategies to better prepare students to thrive in their fields of study, in their future careers, as civic leaders, and as lifelong learners. Conference sessions reflect on current practices, question staid approaches, and spotlight innovative solutions to enhance quality and equity in student learning. Participants come away with new ideas, meaningful connections, and tools to apply immediately in the classroom and beyond.

Diversity, Equity, and Student Success

AAC&U's Conference on Diversity, Equity, and Student Success focuses on building coalitions and breaking down institutional siloes to create more just and equitable campuses and communities. This conference includes opportunities to explore how educators are advancing effective practices, identifying solutions to enduring challenges, and leading change for the common good.

Global Learning

Each year, the AAC&U Conference on Global Learning delves deep into bold new ideas and transformative innovations that prepare all students to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. Share with and learn from a strong community that includes leading visionaries and collaborators who value every voice and every perspective. Through an array of in-depth sessions and workshops, AAC&U explores the most relevant topics around global learning, community-based learning, and other high-impact practices in a global context. Participate in a meeting of minds from around the world.

Transforming STEM Higher Education

The AAC&U Conference on Transforming STEM Higher Education advances undergraduate STEM education reform by foregrounding the diverse perspectives, worldviews, voices, and desires of STEM faculty—especially those from groups that have been historically marginalized in STEM. This event provides a deeper understanding of classroom, institutional, and national levers of reform and outlines a national agenda for manipulating those levers to drive discovery, innovation, and social change in STEM higher education.
