ACAD provides academic leaders who share a commitment to student learning and to the ideals of liberal education with networking and professional development opportunities to support them in their work as educational leaders.
ACAD is proud to announce that our 2022 Annual Meeting will be held February 23-25, 2022 in St. Petersburg, Florida. We are excited to embark on this new journey of providing premier programming for academic leaders.
The meeting is based on our very successful Deans’ Institute and includes plenary speakers, roundtable discussions, intensive workshops and general sessions. Participants can expect the same level of quality programming that ACAD is known for–including interactive sessions, case studies, small group discussions/work, and amazing networking opportunities.
Call for proposals for the meeting will be available in late June 2021.
