For the first time in our 133-year history, the APLU Annual Meeting will be held virtually, from November 9-11, 2020. With the uncertainty of our ability to meet in-person this fall, we feel an online environment will give us the best chance to share strategies, discuss emerging issues, highlight important efforts, and network with public university colleagues from across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
The APLU Annual Meeting is the premier gathering of senior leaders from public research universities, land-grant institutions, and state university systems. No other meeting in higher education brings together such a diverse array of public university presidents, chancellors, and other senior leaders. Though this year will be online, we are committed to creating a high-quality experience for our members. We want to help strengthen our community of public higher education leaders who can share best practices and strategies and make lasting connections with others.
The theme of this year’s APLU Annual Meeting is Resilience & Equity. The Annual Meeting will include several keynotes, interactive and engaging concurrent sessions, and, of course, time to network with colleagues.
