Thank you for attending the 26th Annual Ann Ferren Conference on Teaching, Research, and Learning

The 2015 Ann Ferren Conference on Teaching, Research, and Learning was held on January 9, 2015 in the Mary Graydon Center at American University. This year's conference continued the trend of more than 450 participating faculty, staff and graduate students. The program featured 43 sessions, and early breakfast with cohort breakout sessions and thematic group discussions, and a plenary luncheon featuring a speech titled "Why Liberal Education Matters" by Wesleyan University President Michael S. Roth. A dessert reception followed the last session.

Save the date for the next Ann Ferren Conference: Friday, January 8, 2016. Solicitation for session proposals will begin in the early summer of 2015.
