With the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president, Republicans will soon control the White House as well as both chambers of Congress, along with more state legislatures than any time in history and more governor’s offices than in nearly 100 years. This dominance is likely to lead to profound changes to the American political system, American higher education, or both.
ACE2017, ACE’s 99th Annual Meeting, will give attendees an informed look at the future of higher education just weeks after Trump is sworn into office and the 115th Congress convenes. Among the policy-focused sessions at the March 11-14 meeting in Washington, DC, will be ACE Senior Vice President Terry W. Hartle’s federal relations update, a comprehensive overview of Washington higher education policy.
Plenary sessions will examine themes surrounding leadership in a changing world, equity and social justice, innovation, and higher education leadership. Breakout sessions will explore a variety of vital higher education issues, such as advocacy and public policy; higher education governance; and student access, success and learning.
