Transforming STEM Higher Education Conference

Arlington, VA
Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport Hotel

AAC&U and its Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) are pleased to announce the 2024 Transforming STEM Higher Education Conference, a seven-star professional development experience that advances undergraduate STEM education reform by providing a national platform for the diverse perspectives and experiences of STEM faculty, particularly those from historically marginalized groups and institutions, to be inserted into national STEM reform discourse. This conference offers attendees a chance to disseminate curricular innovations, build community, co-learn, and gain capacity for manipulating the many levers of change that can positively influence institutional and individual transformation.

This year's conference will take place at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport Hotel, 2799 Richmond Highway, Arlington, VA 22202.
