Thank you for attending the 28th Annual Ann Ferren Conference on Teaching, Research, and Learning

The 2017 Ann Ferren Conference on Teaching, Research, and Learning was held on Friday, January 13, 2017 in the Mary Graydon Center at American University. This year's conference continued the trend with more than 400 participating faculty, staff, and graduate students. The program featured 46 sessions; an early breakfast with thematic group discussions; a luncheon; and a plenary session, featuring two keynote speeches by Anthony P. Carnevale (Research Professor and Director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce) and Carol Geary Schneider (President Emerita of the Association of American Colleges and Universities). A dessert reception followed the last session.

Save the date for the next Ann Ferren Conference: Friday, January 12, 2018. Solicitation for session proposals will begin in the early summer of 2017.
