Join University of Miami and Salesforce.org and other leading colleges and universities for an exciting day and a half long journey into how to become a connected campus. Hear from experts in the higher education field, collaborate in breakout sessions about the issues that matter most, and network with peers to learn how technology can transform your college or university into a connected campus.

The 3rd annual Higher Ed Summit is all about building community – community amongst your peers, insight into how you can build community with your constituents, and opportunities to give back to the community in our host city, Miami. The Summit will offer an exciting opportunity to hear and learn directly from your colleagues around the nation. Gather insight into the projects, processes and best practices that enable your peers to connect their students, collaborate with staff, alumni and donors to build stronger lifelong relationships.

Key Takeaways from the Higher Ed Summit:

  • Collaborate with leaders/innovators in higher education to solve the issues affecting you
  • Leverage ideas and best practices to disrupt the status quo and revolutionize how you connect with your prospects, students, alumni, faculty, staff and donors
  • Innovate using social, mobile and cloud technologies to accelerate success
  • Transform your college or university into a connected campus
