January 06, 2021

​There are still a few more days to take advantage of the early bird registration rates for ACE2021, ACE’s online annual meeting set for March 22–24, 2021.

The early bird rates remain in effect through Thursday, Jan. 14, and this year’s virtual format allows more people to attend higher education’s premier event safely and at a lower cost.

Just weeks into the beginning of the Biden administration and a new Congress, political analysts Kirsten Powers and Michael Steele will unpack the tumultuous events of the 2020 election and look at the current landscape during the Monday, March 22, opening plenary session from 1:00–1:45 p.m. (ET).

Other major speakers include Diana S. Natalicio, president emerita of The University of Texas at El Paso, who will deliver the Robert H. Atwell Plenary address on March 23 at 1:00 p.m. (ET), and Johnnetta B. Cole, president emerita, Spelman College and Bennett College, who will speak at the ACE Toast to Women in Higher Education, a separate access event, Friday, March 19, at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

Attendees can view as many livestreamed sessions as they want during ACE2021, and they will have access to recorded sessions after the event is over. And because networking is even more important during this challenging time, ACE2021’s virtual meeting platform will provide numerous options to connect with colleagues on a personal level, including roundtable conversations, video chat features, daily social hours, and wellness breaks. ACE2021 also will focus on issues such as how institutions are handling current and future challenges related to the pandemic; the national reckoning over racial justice, inclusion, and equity; and degree attainment and data analytics.

For more than a century, ACE has convened leaders from across the higher education landscape, as well as other nonprofit sectors and the business community, to collectively tackle the toughest challenges facing colleges and universities; generate fresh perspectives for practical campus solutions; form personal connections; and bring practical, data-driven insights back to their campuses.
