We are pleased to issue a call for nominations for SUNY Student and Faculty fellows for the 2015 SUNY Critical Issues in Higher Education Conference to be held October 29-30, 2015 in New York City. This year, the conference focuses on: Building A New Business Model for the Academy. The final conference agenda and full conference overview are now available: www.suny.edu/sunycon/2015/
Building off of the successful experience of having conference fellows in the past, we are pleased to provide a select number of individuals with the opportunity to learn more about the changing nature of the higher education business model through the lens of conference speakers, discussions, and networking. The documents below detail what we are seeking by way of nominations. Up to 24 fellows (12 students; 12 faculty) will be invited to participate in the conference activities as well as exclusive meetings with some of our keynote speakers.
The student fellows’ conference registration fee and hotel and transportation costs from the individual’s home campus to New York City will be covered.
Applications must be submitted by your campus’ Chief Academic Officer no later than September 30th.
Please contact SUNYCON2015@suny.edu with any questions.
