Texas is the country’s leading changemaker when it comes to higher ed. To capture the energy of this moment, we are excited to announce the Texas Higher Education Leadership Conference is now Higher EDge 

We hope to see you in Austin, Texas for two days of exploration and excitement regarding the future of higher ed. You will join policymakers and leaders in higher education, business, and philanthropy for engaging conversations about the emerging role of AI, commercialization of research efforts on campuses across the state, programs at the leading edge of student success, and more.  

You won’t want to miss the conversation about the historic investments made by the 88th Texas Legislature, the 2023 Star Awards, and Commissioner Harrison Keller’s annual State of Higher Education Address.  

Attendees can continue to expect required training for four and two-year regents and trustees. Higher EDge attendees will also hear from two incredible keynote speakers. Take a glimpse at what else you can expect this year: 

Day 1

  • Panel: Rise of the Machines: How AI is Fundamentally Changing Higher Education and the Workforce
  • Panel: The 88th Texas Legislature: A Historic Investment in Higher Education  

Day 2 

  • Panel: The Changing Face of Texas: Fostering Opportunities in Higher Education for all Texans
