Ups, Downs, Twists and Turns of Higher Education 

The 2019 ACHE South Conference Planning Committee invites members and friends of the Association to submit proposals for conference sessions that will nurture our partnerships and relationships in higher education. We seek conference presentations that demonstrate the following themes: 

  • “If you want a rainbow, you have to put up with the rain” – Dolly PartonUps and Downs: We’ve all experienced the ups and downs that come with higher education. Tell us about your trials in creating and/or growing programs.
  • “If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one” – Dolly PartonTwists and Turns: In any expedition, the leader can be faced with many challenges and obstacles along the way. Tell us how you lead a team through the twists and turns in higher education. Help us pave our own path to become effective leaders.
  • “Storms make trees take deeper roots” – Dolly PartonAdventures: Higher education can be full of adventure. Tell us how you've used partnerships to collaborate and grow your programs that have led to prosperity for your students, your department/unit, and your institution. William Blake writes, “Great things are done when men and mountains meet; this is not done by jostling in the street.”
