March 9-12, 2019
ACE2019 will mark the American Council on Education’s 101st anniversary as the major coordinating body for the nation’s colleges and universities. Corporate and non-profit partners are invited to join ACE at this year’s convening in Philadelphia. For a century, ACE’s Annual Meeting has been the country’s most distinguished higher education event, convening more than 1,800 leaders from deans to presidents from all higher education institutions and associations across the United States. The 2019 Annual Meeting will look to build off the exciting momentum of last year’s centennial annual meeting that yielded remarkable feedback from attendees.
Campus and nonprofit leaders attend ACE’s Annual Meeting to generate fresh perspectives for practical campus solutions, network with top leaders across all higher education sectors, and to bring data-driven insights back to their campuses. Presidents, chancellors, provosts, chief academic officers, vice presidents, chief diversity officers, directors, deans, and other campus leaders attend ACE’s Annual Meeting.
ACE represents over 1,700 college and university presidents and the executives at related associations, and is the only national higher education association to represent all types of U.S. accredited, degree-granting institutions: two-year and four-year, public and private. We convene representatives from all sectors to collectively tackle the toughest higher education challenges, with a focus on improving access and preparing every student to succeed, ensuring a pipeline of prepared leaders in higher education, public policy and research, and internationalization and global engagement. This year’s Annual Meeting also feature a broad spectrum of sessions addressing ACE’s new strategic commitments: affirming and strengthening public trust in postsecondary education; championing equity, access, and completion; enriching the capacity of institutions and leaders to innovate and adapt.
Engage with the only national conference that brings together leaders from across higher education institutions – ACE2019.
