The AACRAO Technology Program focuses on the pragmatic aspects of technology, the issues surrounding its use, and how technology can be applied in an innovative manner. Share how technology integrates into campus operations, and how these tools support the academic policies and objectives of higher education institutions.

AACRAO’s Transfer Program analyzes transfer credit and transfer policies, and features best practices being employed to support the success of this growing student population.

Corporate Presentations
Individuals employed by organizations offering goods and services to institutions of higher education may not serve as presenters in sessions, except through the Corporate Presentation category. In addition, sessions are considered corporate when the subject matter promotes a company’s product. Sessions submitted through the regular proposal form will be reviewed for appropriate content and may be reclassified as a corporate presentation, which would dictate a presentation fee. For information on corporate presentations and fees, contact AACRAO’s Marketing Department at (202) 263-0287, or via e-mail at corporateinfo@aacrao.org.
