2013 Academic Affairs Summer Meeting

Thursday, July 25, 2013 to Saturday, July 27, 2013
Baltimore Marriott Waterfront • Baltimore, Maryland

"Connecting the Dots: Boundless Possibilities”
The AASCU Academic Affairs Summer Meeting will be held at Baltimore Harbor, home of Fort McHenry and the Star Spangled Banner.

About the Conference

Over the past several years, AASCU has been involved in a series of initiatives and projects, including the Stewards of Place, Part Two monograph that will be published in July, the Red Balloon Project, the College and Career Readiness Project, and the American Democracy Project. At our summer conference in Baltimore, we will explore the connections that undergird these projects, and the possible programs that campuses can create to respond in unique ways to the challenges of this new century, using the resources of these various initiatives.

For some, the dramatic changes confronting higher education are a source of anxiety and fear. However, armed with optimism, we will use the Summer Meeting to construct a vision of the way forward for our AASCU institutions, developing unique programs and offerings that are anchored in communities, designed with creative insights built on years of experience, and created to respond to the needs of a new generation of students. In a sense, the location of our meeting, near the historic site of the battle of Fort McHenry, could not be more appropriate. Despite a series of ferocious battles over diminished funding, increased competition, and challenging new technologies, our AASCU flag still waves, a symbol of the strengths we possess and the opportunities that lie ahead.
I hope you will join us.
