We are back! A new semester begins and we jump back into the swing of things! Whether you are face to face, online, or some other form of instruction and interaction, know that NAKHE is here to support you in your efforts. We are truly a community of highly active professionals, with students at the center of our lives. Go forth and educate!


We are pleased to report that registration is now open for the 2022 NAKHE Annual Conference. The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel from January 5-8 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The 2022 NAKHE Conference theme, Embracing the Future: Navigating a Hybrid World, will focus on how leaders can effectively utilize technology and creativity to lead during trying times. While we have all faced the COVID-19 pandemic this is not the only hard to deal with an issue facing higher education. Budget cuts, institutions dealing with natural disasters, national and local social unrest, political legislation that affects institutions, are all major factors that force leaders to do their most creative work for students, staff, faculty, and institutions. Using technology effectively to navigate during trying times is a must. Presentations will be grouped together with other related presentations for each session. The conference is scheduled to be face-to-face with 1 full virtual day of presentations. All face-to-face concurrent sessions will be available for virtual attendees via the Whova App. All named lectures and awards will be live-streamed for our virtual attendees. Face-to-face and online spots will be available for several types of presentations.
