Things Rising Stars Do

Wednesday, October 16 | 12:40PM–1:30PM | Ballroom A
Session Type: E13

Rising stars don't set out to be stars—they are focused on making a difference. They are the ones who are constantly looking for ways to grow personally and professionally. Never afraid to take on challenges others shy away from, they often find themselves rewarded with bigger and more difficult things to do. They want to make an impact on higher education—and that's what makes them stars. Come hear past and present chairs of the EDUCAUSE Recognition Committee discuss what it takes to be a rising star in our profession.


Develop an awareness of the competencies and career trajectories that characterize those high performers previously considered by the EDUCAUSE Recognition Committee for the Rising Star award.Ê
