Who Should Attend?

If you work with Drupal and the web at your institution, college, university, or school, you’re in the right place. Web developers, managers, communicators, graphic designers, web editors are all welcome, and we are ensuring that there is content to engage all audiences.

Why Should You Attend?

We have refreshed the DrupalCon Higher-Ed Summit format based on your feedback. The 2019 Higher-Ed Summit features planned sessions, lightning talks, peer group discussions, and opportunities for collaboration and continued discussion throughout the conference. We are focused on maximizing the value for attendees and making sure all of our attendees leave with new knowledge, connections, and perspectives.
