Our field is rapidly changing due in large part to advances in technology during a period of economic stagnation.  New, powerful opportunities have emerged in higher education, including analytics, assessment models, MOOCs, and flexible learning programs designed to facilitate degree completion.  Those who understand these developing trends and can master the strategic use of online learning will flourish in the coming years; those who do not will be vulnerable to eroding enrollments, or worse.

In a unique partnership between UPCEA and ACE, the Summit convenes key thought leaders and practitioners to address four key topics that are re-shaping the 21st century university:

  • Aligning Online Education with Institutional Mission and Strategy
  • How Big Data is Driving Efficiency and Effectiveness
  • Innovation, Access, and Affordability: A Strategic Imperative
  • Understanding the Policy Environment for Online Education

UPCEA and ACE are grateful to our Strategic Innovation Leaders for their generous support of the Summit for Online Leadership & Strategy:
