What is HighEdWeb Southeast?
HighEdWeb Southeast brings together higher education professionals involved in all aspects of web communications – programmers, designers, content strategists, marketers, social media community managers, and news and public relations specialists. When it comes to the web, each of these positions overlap and build off of one another to create an effective, persuasive web presence. HighEdWeb is designed to bring these groups together to share knowledge, encourage best practices, and move our web communications to the next level.
HighEdWeb hosts an annual national conference every October. Following the 2012 annual conference’s record-breaking attendance, the Association set up a series of smaller local conferences that would allow more attendees to come and present, meet, and learn. The Southeast regional is reaching out to higher education institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia to come and attend (and if you are farther afield we certainly invite you as well!)
Who runs HighEdWeb Southeast?
The Southeast regional at the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center is being coordinated by a team of higher ed Web folks from throughout the Southeast – Francis Marion University, the University of Florida, Florence-Darlington Technical College, The Citadel, and Duke University.
