Industry and Client-Led Session

This session is a presentation given by a client of a corporation (at least one higher education institution required). A subject matter expert from your corporation is present to add to the discussion. Your client will demonstrate the benefits your company's solutions have had on campus, enabling them to speak to general benefits for other campuses. Q&A provides for valuable interaction between the client/corporation and the audience.

Industry and Campus Hot-Topic Panel

This session consists of a panel of three subject-matter experts (at least one institutional representative is required) and a moderator. The topic should address a hot topic of key interest to higher education; emerging trends; research; and strategies, technologies, and business offerings.
