Fall 2015 Reach Higher Conference

The 2015 Reach Higher Fall Conference will be held Thursday, Oct. 8, at the University of Central Oklahoma. All faculty teaching an organizational leadership course for Reach Higher, all Reach Higher coordinators and all student service providers who work directly with Reach Higher students are expected to attend. Additionally, there are many faculty and staff interested in adult learners and accelerated learning, so this is a great opportunity for those individuals to attend.
