"Disrupt the System...Move from Access to Success for the Non-Traditional Student"

This year’s theme is more relevant than ever. Because as part of the support network for Nontraditional Students or as an adult learner yourself, you more than anyone else know the difference between access and success. The variables may be different from learner to learner, but what value is access if there are no support mechanisms in place to help you or your students achieve success?  You're helping to not only find critical solutions to address the many challenges facing administrators, faculty, advisors, and nontraditional students today, but also, through research, innovative programs, and your own experiences, are identifying what programs or approaches have been more destructive than constructive, and are initiating new programs that are proving effective, going beyond mere access, to move closer towards success for the adult learner. Which is why we need your voice, now more than ever, to further explore the higher calling—moving from Access to Success—to quell the destructive segments of higher education today. Read more about Disrupt the System.

Why should you attend ANTSHE Conference 2020?

The ANTSHE annual conference, is the only national conference that brings together not only college/university administrators, advisors, and faculty, but also adult learners and other innovative leaders who provide guidance, support, and advocate for them. The ANTSHE conference provides attendees with the opportunity to experience engaging content, networking, and valuable, high quality education. 

ANTSHE promises in 2020 to deliver the same kind of high quality conference experience that our attendees have come to expect, with more than 60 presentations by colleagues representing all sectors of higher education, round table discussions, an academic leadership panel featuring some of the top leaders in higher education today, and an exhibit hall featuring the latest tools and resources for colleges/universities who support adult learners. Did I mention that the ANTSHE conference also holds a nontraditional student panel discussion as well and a special track just for nontraditional students? Our adult learners not only attend the conference, but they also participate by sharing their experiences, presenting ideas and their research, poster sessions, and by seeking feedback from attendees.
