HESummitLast year, the first Summit Awards were presented during the evening reception on the second day of the Higher Ed Summit. Attendees walked into the Austin Social Club, a familiar room where lunch was served that day, to find it completely transformed. By the time the awards were presented, everyone was excited to hear the winners. The awards for Student Success and Operational Efficiency were voted on in the Power of Us Hub and received hundreds of votes. Many of those voters were in the room that night, ready to hear the announcement! Peter Coffee presented the awards to Arizona State University, University of Florida and University of Wisconsin-Extension.
