Pre-Conferences

ASHE's four Councils each host a Pre-Conference Forum. These are open to any conference attendee, regardless of Council membership.  Each Pre-Conference requires a separate registration.


Council for Advancement of Higher Education Programs (CAHEP) Pre-Conference Forum

Wednesday, November 16, Tentative Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm Pacific/Las Vegas Time

The mission of the Council for the Advancement of Higher Education Programs (CAHEP) is to enrich the teaching and learning experiences of students and faculty in the Association's constituent Higher Education Programs as well as to facilitate exchange among program coordinators/directors, faculty, students, and other interested members of the Association and externally. In keeping with this year’s theme of Humanizing Higher Education, CAHEP seeks proposals to present research and scholarly papers or facilitate roundtables and symposia that promote humanizing policies, practices, and perspectives within higher education programs. 


Council for Ethnic Participation (CEP) Pre-Conference Forum

Wednesday, November 16, Tentative Time: 9:00am-7:00pm Pacific/Las Vegas Time

The primary focus of the Council for Ethnic Participation (CEP) is to maintain and guide the integrity of the structural diversity of ASHE. The CEP Pre-Conference Forum offers opportunities for attendees to focus intensively, extensively, and specifically on issues of race, ethnicity, and racism, and the intersections of racism with other interlocking systems of oppression. In keeping with the general conference theme, Humanizing Higher Education, we envision this year’s CEP pre-conference as a space for centering healing and joy as important dimensions of a humanizing experience. 


Council on International Higher Education (CIHE) Pre-Conference Forum

Wednesday, November 16, Tentative Time: 9:00am-6:00pm Pacific/Las Vegas Time

The mission of the Council on International Higher Education (CIHE) is to provide a forum for the dissemination of and exchange of ideas on research and theory on higher education from comparative, contrasting cultural, and international perspectives. The 2022 CIHE Pre-Conference will host sessions that incorporate a comparative dimension in their methods or theoretical frameworks or explore practices and structures that have international implications. 


Council on Public Policy in Higher Education (CPPHE) Pre-Conference

Wednesday, November 16, Tentative Time: 9:00am-6:00pm Pacific/Las Vegas Time

The purposes of the Council on Public Policy in Higher Education (CPPHE) are to promote research on, and to advance understanding of, the processes and impacts of public policy in U.S. higher education, as well as to help inform decision-making in the public policy arena. The Council also serves as an incubator and facilitator of future policy-relevant research and as an ongoing network for the exchange of ideas and information. The CPPHE Pre-Conference Forum examines the role of higher education research in informing decision-making in the public policy arena, while simultaneously exploring how the places and spaces that higher education occupy shape how policies are formed, how policies are implemented, and how policies are evaluated.
