As you can see from the schedule, the HEDS Annual Conference brings together people in an informal setting to present on and discuss topics related to assessment, institutional research, and institutional effectiveness. One of last year’s conference attendees said, “I learned so much from hearing how other colleagues tackle issues on campus. I always come open to new ideas, and I walk away with new skills and ideas to take back and try out.”

The conference also provides many opportunities to connect with colleagues. Another past participant said, “I appreciate the informal, low-key opportunity to learn and interact with my peers. Many of the presentations gave me useful language to use in thinking about, organizing, and sharing information.”
