International Participation

ACE recognizes that global perspectives are critical to solving contemporary problems, ensuring academic excellence, and preparing a world-class work force and is committed to increasing participation from all regions of the world. For an international participant, the ACE Annual Meeting is a useful venue for networking with leaders from U.S. higher education institutions and will allow you to gain a better understanding of issues and developments affecting higher education in the United States. We are very excited about the conference program for the 96th Annual Meeting and the opportunities it offers for learning as well as networking. We look forward to welcoming you in San Diego, CA.
