The Leadership Academy features 4 weeks of synchronous and asynchronous course content led by HighEdWeb mentors. This provides an accessible and immersive continuing education experience that attendees can immediately apply to their work and strategic goals.

By supporting the Leadership Academy, you’ll have opportunities to network, share how you can help attendees meet goals and challenges within their organizations, and grow brand recognition as a sponsor within the HighEdWeb community. And, thanks to sponsors like you, HighEdWeb can continue to provide high-quality, high-impact content and learning experiences to meet this need at an affordable cost for our attendees.


HighEdWeb conferences are truly international events, attracting higher education professionals from institutions throughout the United States and beyond. Past attendees have hailed from Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka and Sweden.
