Professional development by and for higher ed professionals

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.

So save the date — Oct. 9-12, 2022 — and plan to attend #HEWeb22 in Little Rock or online. We'll offer hybrid learning options, so everyone can join in.

Safety and Inclusivity at #HEWeb22

HighEdWeb’s mission is to educate. While our primary audience is digital professionals who work at colleges and universities, we know that the impacts of the knowledge shared at HighEdWeb events extend far beyond higher education communities. Our annual conference rotates between major regions in the United States so that we can equally serve our communities wherever they are located throughout the country.


Through our Code of Conduct and other safety guidelines, we ensure that the annual conference and all HighEdWeb events are spaces where people can safely gather to exchange diverse ideas. For many of us, HEWeb22 will be a homecoming: a chance to be together with our community and learn from each other. Whether it’s in Little Rock or online, we hope you will add your voice to this year’s conference.
