There are several ways to engage with the Consortium at this year’s Creating Change Conference including the Daylong Institute, workshops, regional connections, constituency spaces & socials.

This year most of the higher education-related sessions will be in the same room (Austin 2, Hotel 2nd floor).  We will also have a Consortium table in front of Austin 2, Hotel 2nd floor, so stop by to say hi and ask us any questions you might have about the Consortium. 


Daylong Institute

This year’s Daylong will be centered on Queering the Future. The Daylong will feature critical conversations around issues, trends, and best practices in our field. The Daylong will feature opportunities to connect with other colleagues and friends across regions and discuss how we would like to see the future of our profession impact our communities. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Membership Engagement Collective ([email protected]).

Higher Education-Related Sessions
The Consortium board worked with the National LGBTQ Task Force staff to curate a diversity of higher-education sessions throughout each day of the conference in the same (or a nearby) room.  We hope this will provide our membership with opportunities to engage in sessions related to our work throughout the conference in a convenient location!
