AIR Forum Annual Conference

AIR Forum Virtual: June 29 – July 1, 2020

Announcing AIR Forum Virtual, the first-ever all-digital conference for champions of data-informed decision making in higher education. The conference takes place June 29 – July 1, 2020, from the comfort of your own desk.

Keeping the health and safety of our community at the forefront of our decision making, we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 AIR Forum, originally scheduled for May 25–29 in New Orleans—including pre-/post-conference education. We will instead hold a virtual conference to unite our community around the latest news and information impacting our work.
