60th Anniversary Reunion Weekend

2017 marks both the University of Michigan's bicentennial and the 60th anniversary of the Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education (CSHPE).

You are invited to Ann Arbor for a weekend full of activities! Join us as we celebrate the Center's distinguished people and past, and consider the future of higher education.

  • Attend the presidential colloquium, "The Campus of the Future" – the culmination of a university-wide, year-long competition by students to reimagine methods and spaces for teaching and learning at a residential research university.
  • Participate in CSHPE alumni/faculty panel discussions – topics will include Access, Diversity, and Student Success in Higher Education; Teaching and Learning in the University Context; and Higher Education Policy, Organization, and Finance.
  • Share meals and memories with your friends and alumni peers.
  • Offer helpful advice to current CSHPE students during a networking event.
  • Join the School of Education tailgate and help cheer the Wolverines to victory against Rutgers.
