HighEdWeb 2016 Michigan is a regional event in partnership with local universities. Join us May 5-6, 2016, on the campus of Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The Higher Education Web Professionals Association strives to advance web professionals, technologies and standards in higher education. The Association hosts an annual conference in October and has set up this series of regional conferences to allow more attendees to present, meet, and learn. The Michigan regional is reaching out to higher education institutions within Michigan (and beyond) to attend.

Attendees come from across higher ed

Regional conferences offer a low-cost way to learn about the digital issues facing higher ed. Regardless of where you work in higher education — IT, marketing, admissions, advancement or academics — we welcome you to the HighEdWeb community.

Attendees range from departmental editors to central IT or marketing staff. Bring your entire team — and you'll gain a shared understanding of how to use digital to advance your school.
