Higher Education Convening & 50th Reunion


Higher Education Program’s 50th Anniversary Celebration
February 14-15, 2020


The William & Mary Higher Education Program is among the oldest in the nation. On April 3, 1969, the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia approved a proposal “for the Inauguration of Graduate Degree Programs in Community College Teaching and Higher Education Administration.” A lot has happened in the 50 years since the start of the program, and program alumni now serve throughout the world as faculty members, administrative leaders, student affairs professionals, policy makers and more.

Make plans to join us back on campus as we celebrate the program’s 50th anniversary. Highlights of the event include:

• A convening of Virginia’s higher education programs to share emerging research and discuss issues surrounding higher education in the Commonwealth

Networking opportunities to reconnect with classmates, faculty, colleagues, and university staff

Workshops on leadership development and working with students in co-curricular activities

Fun social events designed to let you visit old haunts and tour recent changes on campus and around town

• A dinner keynote address by Dr. Jerryl Briggs Ed.S. ‘95, Ed.D. ’10, current president of Mississippi Valley State University
