Conference FAQs

We know there is lots of excitement for ASHE 2020, as well as many questions. We're working to get your answers as we prepare the logistics and programming for ASHE 2020. Here are answers to some FAQs we've had over the past few weeks:

  • All general conference sessions will be streamed live and recorded. Your registration fee includes access to all recorded sessions, which will be available after the conference. Pre-Conferences and Professional Development events will only be offered live.

  • ​We encourage attendees to immerse themselves (as possible) in the virtual conference experience--set your schedule just as you would for an in-person conference and interact through question and answer, chat, and interactive sections of presentations.

  • If you are attending a paper session, you will watch the presenters and won't be on camera.

  • If you are presenting, you will be on camera for the entire 75 minutes of the presentation. However, you can turn your camera off for parts of the session when you aren't actively presenting.

  • For some sessions (e.g., roundtables, interactive symposia), presenters and attendees may be on camera to engage in a dialogue. This will be made clear in session descriptions.

  • If you choose to participate in any networking events (which we hope you will!), we encourage you to engage fully by being on video.

  • We're working with our virtual platform company on accessibility for the conference. Participants will be able to let us know of individual accessibility requests during registration; we ask for requests to be made by October 15 to ensure we are best able to accommodate the request. Participants can also visit the accessibility webpage for more information and contact ASHE Conference Coordinator James Hines ( with questions/concerns.

  • The 2020 Program Committee and Land Acknowledgment Working Group are working to provide resources for all presenters to engage in land acknowledgment when presenting at ASHE 2020.

  • We hope to bring many of the same exhibitors from previous years to the virtual conference.

  • We are currently working on planning formal and informal networking events, including providing a virtual space for institutions/organizations to host receptions.
