Who Should Attend?

ACE2017, the American Council on Education’s 99th Annual Meeting, was the country’s most distinguished higher education event, convening nearly 2,000 leaders from deans to presidents from all institutional types. The event was held on March 11–14 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Washington, DC. Attendees gained fresh perspectives for practical solutions on their campuses and networked with top leaders across all higher education sectors.
