Last year, 90% of Forum participants cited learning and professional development as the #1 reason to attend, and 87% of workshops attendees said they gained knowledge or skills they could use immediately.


Workshops are interactive and engage participants in learning about practical tools and techniques for assessment, institutional research, and statistics and are led by respected leaders and innovators in higher education. Workshops are offered on Monday and Tuesday and pre-registration and additional fees are required.


Tuesday marks the official start of the 2017 Forum with a series of invited sessions focused on a wide range of emerging and important topics and issues with impact for everyone in higher education fields. These Impact sessions are open to all registered Forum attendees and will include lecture and panel presentations, followed by interactive discussions.


Join us Wednesday morning for your choice of one of two plenary presentations and Friday morning for our closing keynote. Plenaries and keynotes are presented by thought leaders in the field, including: Jeff Strohl, Allison Clarke, and Talithia Williams.


With over 300 peer-reviewed sessions and 600+ presenters, the 2017 Forum has exceptional content for all higher education professionals who use data for decision making. Concurrent sessions feature speaker sessions, panel presentations, discussion groups, and poster presentations.
