Why am I attending the conference?
I am attending this conference because it is an effective way to learn and
increase my knowledge. The conference is the best way to benchmark our
programs against other institutions. I also am interested in sharing our
experiences in developing our full spectrum programs and/or partnering with
others who see benefits in working with an established on-line institution that has
an extensive catalog of offerings and a highly talented adjunct faculty of over
400.
