You’re invited to EAB IGNITED

Declines in demographics, college-going rates, and mental health are threatening the fundamental economics of higher education, while advances in AI, automation, and remote engagement are poised to disrupt the way we learn and work. EAB’s annual IGNITED summit will convene Presidents, Provosts, CBOs, and Chiefs of Staff for in-depth discussions about the latest challenges facing our sector, and provide a framework for reimagining shared governance in an era that demands both agility and renewed trust.

This is a cross-cabinet meeting; Presidents also have the opportunity to engage in this content at their closed-door annual roundtable (February 2024).

Roundtables for Provosts and CBOs will take place in Spring 2024, featuring role-specific research. Partners are invited to attend both meetings.

Space is limited, and attendance is restricted to the above titles to foster senior-level conversations.

Note: For travel planning purposes, the meeting will commence at 12:00 p.m. on the first day and adjourn at 12:00 p.m. on the second day. EAB will host dinner for attendees following the first day of presentations, please let us know if you are unable to attend.
