The Convergence Forum

June 24–25, 2019
Toronto, CA

The Convergence Forum, co-hosted by EDUCAUSE and the Deloitte Center for Higher Education Excellence brings together higher education leaders to explore the crossroads of academic, administrative, and technology issues in higher education today.

About the Convergence Forum

The forces affecting higher education are increasing the imperative for innovation, change, and dynamism. Much of this change agenda demands that the entire leadership team of an institution be aligned on the Institution’s business model, culture, and mission. With technology playing such an integral role in nearly every aspect of a university’s long-term strategy, bridging gaps of communication and understanding across these leadership positions is more critical now than at any time in the past.
