Network with Colleagues

ACE’s Annual Meeting is the country’s premier higher education event, bringing together nearly 2,000 higher education leaders to network with one another and hear from thought leaders and newsmakers discussing the most pressing issues of the day.

Look Back and Plan Ahead

Plan now to join us in Washington, DC, in an academic year in which we commemorate and reflect on the 50th anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act, the Higher Education Act, and the Voting Rights Act. Meeting attendees will have opportunities to reflect on the promise of these initiatives when they were first created, assess the current status of these missions, and look ahead to new challenges and accomplishments.
