Studley will discuss President Obama’s proposal to develop a college rating system that informs students and encourages institutions to improve and innovate. She will also discuss the role that accreditation plays in ensuring high quality education and advancing student and institutional success in this dynamic environment.

This event brings together chief executive officers, trustees, other administrators, and faculty from the Higher Learning Commission’s accredited institutions. The conference places emphasis on improving student learning through the sharing of best practices in higher education.
