WHO SHOULD ATTEND
All practitioners, professionals, educators, and researchers from academic and student affairs are welcome. Because work on HIPs is rarely done in isolation, we encourage institutions to support and send a team of individuals to the HIPs in the States Conference as presenters or as attendees. To facilitate, teams comprised of three members will be offered a reduced conference registration. A discount rate is also available to attendees from community colleges. Registration rates are listed below and is now open.
