2024 AAC&U Annual Meeting
Shaping and sharing solutions to the most pressing challenges facing higher education today
In a pervasive post-truth media culture, false narratives about higher education quickly gain traction and shape public perceptions. These narratives simultaneously fuel and are fed by burgeoning efforts to bring higher education under the control of partisan politics. How can we break through to defend academic freedom, demonstrate the value of a liberal education, or recover the understanding of higher education as a public good? The rapid progress of artificial intelligence and other new technologies drives profound economic and social transformation. How can these new technologies be harnessed to advance the academic enterprise, and how can we prepare our students for a world being transformed by them?
Join colleagues and thought leaders from across the global higher education landscape to shape and share solutions to these and other challenges facing colleges and universities. The 2024 Annual Meeting will feature inspiring and insightful plenaries, opportunities to network with peers across institutional types, and a full community-generated program showcasing successful models of institutional transformation and best practices for promoting equity, innovation, and excellence in liberal education.
New this year, AAC&U's Pre-meeting Symposium will be held in conjunction with the 2024 UERU National Conference. This special ticketed event will be dedicated to The Equity/Excellence Imperative in Action. This is the title of the Association for Undergraduate Education at Research Universities (UERU)-sponsored Boyer 2030 Commission Report, with “in action” emphasizing the presentation of ongoing leading-edge innovations in undergraduate education from across the U.S. research university landscape.
