Western to host two major conferences in 2019

Western will host two major conferences in 2019.

Western will host the Times Higher Education (THE) Teaching Excellence Summit in 2019 - the first time a THE World Summit Series event has been hosted in Canada, as well as the International Association of College Admission Counseling (IACAC) Conference.

Taking place at Western June 4 to 6, the Teaching Excellence Summit will be titled Degrees of Change: Forces shaping the teaching and learning of tomorrow and will explore themes of providing students educational opportunities beyond their borders; the impact and integration of technology and artificial intelligence on higher education; and the critical role post-secondary institutions must play in building a more inclusive society.

The IACAC Conference is the largest gathering of international college and university admission counselling/guidance counselling staff in the world, with an anticipated 1,200 to 1,800 attendees. Taking place at Western July 9 to 12, it marks the second time the Conference has been held in Canada.
