ACE2018 will have a diverse agenda, offering sessions that will unpack the political, policy, and practical issues impacting the decisions you make every day.

The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is designed for early to mid-career professionals and faculty leaders who have an interest in and talent for higher education leadership and who want to advance their careers in administration. The first portion of the program, a 3 1/2-day seminar, offers participants the opportunity to engage in a national dialogue with experienced leaders and experts in higher education and to develop a network of colleagues from around the country. The program also includes opportunities for hands-on practical exercises, a leadership self-assessment, and the development of a plan designed to help participants achieve their leadership goals.Find out more »

In our conference in Seattle, we will explore a number of ways that challenges can be viewed as opportunities. We will continue to focus, as we have for the last several years, on changing models of student success: predictive analytics, pathways, intrusive advising, etc. We’ll be reporting on the outcomes from our three year project, Re-Imagining the First Year (RFY), as well as providing reports from our Frontier Set (FS) work. We will also be looking at faculty issues and concerns such as shared governance, contingent faculty, new approaches to professional development, support for department chairs, etc. We’ll be considering other campus-wide issues such as free speech, sexual assault, collaboration with student affairs, and a variety of others.Find out more »
