Storytellers and Geeks United for Higher Ed

Where do you fall in your University? Are you a communicator? Or a developer? Do you talk to people? Or computers? Or both? This year, the Higher Education Summit will be focused on collaboration between the geeks and the storytellers.

Universities are a unique environment, but communications is no less important than at any other major organization. Come meet with people from colleges and universities across the state, country, and, yes, even the globe, to share ideas, network, form partnerships, and learn.
