Hundreds of higher education leaders from across the country – ranging from presidents, academic affairs leaders and faculty to policymakers and philanthropists –will convene June 22-23 in New York City to address the policies and practices that must be advanced to center effective teaching in the nation’s success and equity agenda. Attendees will identify practical ideas they can take back to their campuses and implement immediately, as well as strategies for elevating the attention on the importance of this work.

Featured plenary presenters include Harry Williams, president and CEO of Thurgood Marshall College Fund; Dame Louise Richardson, the new president of the Carnegie Corporation of New York; Félix V. Matos Rodríguez, Chancellor of the City University of New York; and Nancy L. Zimpher, Chancellor Emerita of the State University of New York and director of the Power of Systems initiative by the National Association of System Heads. In addition, more than 75 other experts, practitioners and champions of effective college instruction will lead more than four dozen concurrent sessions.

NHETC's opening plenary, facilitated by NPR correspondent Michel Martin, will address college teaching's past present and future with Jose Bowen, author of “Teaching Naked” and “Teaching Change," American University's Corbin Campbell, author of “Great College Teaching,”, DEI expert and author of “Sentipensante,” University of Texas-San Antonio's Laura Redon and author of “Amateur Hour” University of Pennsylvania’s Jonathan Zimmerman.

Modeling effective teaching practices, breakout sessions will include proven, active-learning pedagogies.

Attendees will learn:

  • the evidence behind proven instructional approaches, innovations in teaching;
  • the relationship between pedagogy and equity;
  • research how to demonstrate greater learning, retention, financial ROI, and reputational benefits;
  • how to best engage and recognize faculty;
  • and how we can, together, restore the public’s confidence in the value of higher education.

In addition to ACUE, co-hosts for the NHETC include the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the City University of New York, the ECMC Foundation, Excelencia in Education, the National Association of System Heads, Strada Education Foundation, the Raikes Foundation, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and the American Council on Education.
