Get the Scoop on Higher Education Trends at ACE2019
Published: December 19, 2018

Many forces—political, financial, demographic—are putting higher education under enormous pressure right now. College and university leaders attending ACE2019 can learn what to be prepared for in the year ahead at a concurrent session where editors and reporters from The Chronicle of Higher Education will discuss the publication’s 2019 Trends Report.

This is just one of the thought-provoking sessions planned for ACE2019, ACE’s 101st Annual Meeting, March 9-12 in Philadelphia. Nearly 2,000 college and university leaders from deans to presidents will gather at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown to gain knowledge about practical solutions for many of the challenges higher education faces today, network with leaders from across all institutional types, and be inspired by the achievements of colleagues and the insights of a diverse slate of speakers. 

Other sessions include author Tara Westover discussing her best-selling memoir Educated and the transformative power of education during the ACE2019 Monday Luncheon Plenary, and ACE Senior Vice President Terry W. Hartle’s federal relations update on what higher education leaders can expect from policymakers on topics such as Title IX campus sexual assault, immigration, federal regulations, and budget and appropriations.

ACE2019 will begin Saturday, March 9, at 5 p.m., with the International Welcome and Networking Reception. Other events that evening include the ACE Women’s Leadership Dinner (tickets required) and a reception for presidents and chancellors.

Sunday morning will feature two sessions just for presidents and chancellors, as well as concurrent sessions open to all attendees. A new Sunday Luncheon Plenary will take place that day ahead of the 5 p.m. Robert H. Atwell Plenary address, named by the ACE Board of Directors for the former ACE president who served from 1984 to 1996.
