We’re the Higher Education Web Professionals Association — but we’re all friends, so just call us HighEdWeb.

The HighEdWeb Association

The Higher Education Web Professionals Association (HighEdWeb) is the international organization of professionals working to design, develop, manage and map the future of digital in higher education. Each fall, we come together at our Annual Conference and we remain active year-round via our educational and networking events, our online member community and our Link Journal.

The Annual Conference

The HighEdWeb Annual Conference is the conference created by and for all higher education professionals who want to explore the web and digital’s role in their organization. From programmers, marketers and social pros, to managers, designers and writers (and all team members in-between), together we explore and find solutions for the unique issues around digital at colleges and universities — because we know that the impact of digital extends far beyond divisional or department lines. With diverse presentation sessions, an inspiring keynote and group discussions, and time to connect with the best community around, the HighEdWeb Annual Conference offers affordable, valuable professional development for everyone.
