HEDS Annual Conference
June 26–29, 2016
Asheville, North Carolina
The 2016 HEDS Annual Conference will take place at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel in downtown Asheville, North Carolina.
The annual conference brings together people from small colleges and universities in an informal setting to present on and discuss topics related to assessment, institutional research, and institutional effectiveness. We welcome participants from all colleges and universities—you do not have to be from a HEDS institution or an institutional researcher to attend this conference.
Our annual conferences are uniquely designed to facilitate good conversations and networking opportunities:
- We hold few concurrent sessions so that everyone can attend sessions together.
- Lunch is included in the registration fee to allow conversations to continue between sessions
- Optional group dinners and outings give you time after sessions to connect with your colleagues.
We will post details about preconference workshops, invited speakers, call for proposals, and other optional events on this webpage as information becomes available.
Nestled along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail, and the Pisgah National Forest, Asheville is a vibrant city filled with unique restaurants and shops, craft breweries, galleries, and a prevalent live music scene. It's also home to the famous Biltmore Estate, George Vanderbilt's mansion constructed in the 1890's, with gardens and park designed by Frederick Law Olmstead.
