The conference is attended by nearly 200o students, faculty, staff and university leaders from around the globe, and there are hundreds of presentations and workshops to educate and inspire.
The early bird registration ends on June 14th, so if you’d like to attend please register soon to save money. WKU is an AASHE member, so you may also take advantage of our institutional member discount.
The Student Summit is amazing, bringing together hundreds of students from around the world to share ideas, ask questions, challenge each other, and be inspired by great keynote speakers.
