Proposal Deadline: November 16, 2012
Theme: "Partnering to Serve: Opportunities for All"
The 2013 ACHE South Conference will be held at the Sandestin Resort, Florida. The resort is actually like a small village, combining shops, recreation, restaurants and lodging into one large area for visitors’ convenience. Similarly, many outreach units throughout the country are combined into one larger unit in order to better serve our customers. By sharing resources, we can be more efficient and offer a greater diversity of programming. In order to accomplish that, we need to understand the 'big picture'...where does continuing education fit within our universities' strategic objectives, and how do we work toward reaching a more diverse audience? As we become a more global society, diverse audiences will be crucial to remaining competitive.
As continuing educators, we are often called upon in difficult economic times to reinvent ourselves to attract new populations to our colleges and universities and think creatively about higher education's responsibility for community and regional development. As an academic community, we are also committed to lifelong learning, exceptional student service, and business, industry, and public outreach. We do this by not only creating vital business, marketing and student service resources within our areas, but through external partnerships with businesses, organizations, vendors and other providers.
