The Equity/Excellence Imperative In Action

The 2024 UERU National Conference and AAC&U Pre-Conference Symposium
January 17-18 | Washington, D.C.

The 2024 UERU National Conference (and AAC&U pre-conference symposium) was dedicated to The Equity/Excellence Imperative in Action. This is the title of the UERU-sponsored Boyer 2030 Commission Report, with the addition of “in action” to emphasize the presentation of leading-edge innovations in undergraduate education from across the U.S. research university landscape. On Jan. 17, UERU welcomed AAC&U President and Boyer 2030 Commissioner, Lynn Pasquerella, for opening remarks, and a luncheon keynote on Boyer 2030 by AAC&U's Tia Brown McNair. UERU National Conference participants also enjoyed AAC&U’s Jan. 17 opening night forum and reception, and a series of sessions on Jan. 18, culminating in an evening reception and poster session.

The 2018 Reinvention Collaborative National Conference
November 8-10 | Arlington, Virginia

The 2018 Biennial National Conference featured more UVPs (Undergraduate Vice Presidents/Provosts) and more participants overall than any previous Reinvention Collaborative meeting.

Plenary speakers included presidents of major higher education consortia and university presidents and provosts. National conference plenaries also included leading UVPs, experts in undergraduate affairs.

The conference also featured breakout sessions that highlighted undergraduate innovation at myriad research universities, a poster session, meet-the-author with Buck Goldstein, and sponsorship by Piazza.

The papers on which conference presentations are based were collected in an online digital resource. In this way, UERU aims to disseminate its members’ featured innovative practices for the benefit of all.

At the conference, the first steps of RC20/20, a multi-year project aimed at the improvement of understanding the efforts of universities to advance the undergraduate educational experience by designing, implementing, evaluating and highlighting research-based programs, were presented.
