We are accepting session proposals under three conference tracks:

3. Common Challenges Faced by Institutional Leaders and International Administrators
We hope that many of you will submit session proposals.
We would like to also encourage you to attend the 2013 SUNY Critical Issues in Higher Education Conference. This year’s theme: “Building a Smarter University Big Data, Innovation and Ingenuity.” This conference will also take place in New York City immediately before the UCosmic@ Consortium Conference, on October 29–30th. The UCosmic@ Consortium will be featured during one of the conference sessions at this Big Data conference. Click to view the Big Data conference flyer.
We hope you will consider attending both conferences and the Stakeholder meeting. We can assure you that this will be 4-days well spent in New York City. But even if you cannot come for the entire period, please try to come for the UCosmic@ Consortium Conference. We will be arranging for hotel rooms at a special discount rate for the duration of both conferences. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to be in touch.
