College Big-Wigs Converge on San Diego for Annual Meet

    The 90th annual meeting of the American Council on Education
    took place in San Diego this week,
    attracting nearly 1,500 leaders in higher education to the yearly forum. Among
    the featured speakers at the event were Virginia Polytechnic Institute and
    State University President Charles Steger and editor-in-chief and co-founder of
    the Huffington Post Arianna Huffington.

    Each year the event provides an opportunity for college and
    university leaders to discuss important policy concerns and exchange ideas for
    future practices. This year’s meeting, which took place at the Manchester Grand
    Hyatt Hotel downtown, was centered on the theme “Taking Charge of Our Future.”

    The highlights of this year’s event included a speech by
    Huffington in honor of the 35th anniversary of the ACE’s Office of Women in
    Higher Education, and Steger’s participation in a plenary session on campus
    security nearly one year after the shootings at Virginia Tech.
