An IR State of Mind


Forum Schedule 
(*Rooms subject to change)

This year’s conference theme is: An IR State of Mind.  So much of what we do involves interacting with various people at different levels within and outside our institutions requiring more skills than what we do at our desks. Having the right skill set can be daunting as it continuously challenges us as our institutions evolve, the demographics of our students change, and the economic/political forces place additional strain on our environment. An IR State of Mind is a unification of all of us that deal with these challenges in similar ways. Join us at the conference to share your triumphs and pitfalls in a safe place to so we can all improve our IR State of Mind!
