Higher Education

USDLA - 2023 National Conference

Washington, DC (USA), April 2023 - Kate Colbert and Joe Sallustio, authors of Commencement, one of the hottest books to hit higher ed, will deliver a Keynote Highlight on Tuesday, 18 July, 11:30 EST to open the USDLA National Conference.

The pursuit of higher education is a time-honored tradition - but traditions change. "The colleges and universities providing millions of degree and non-degree credentials each year are a vital backbone of communities and economies," explain the authors.

"These institutions elevate the critical-thinking capacities of students and learners, and they provide crucial job skills and life skills to emerging workforces. But the skills we need, the ways in which we collaborate, and the very jobs available to graduates are changing. It's time for higher education to start anew. It's time for commencement into a new era."

Reviewers have called Commencement "higher education's must-read book of 2022, with input from three higher-ed authors, 100+ college and university presidents, as well as dozens of actionable insights for academic leaders."

All keynotes and sessions will be on site at the Wyndham Orlando Resort, our host location for the conference. And, unlike some conferences, the workshops are included.
