PHOENIX, June 2, 2021— Shift Summit, the Student Financial Success conference for higher ed leaders, begins Tuesday, June 8, 2021, and runs through June 10. The virtual event focuses on driving higher education institutions to adopt Student Financial Success. This innovative, proven model has already streamlined the financial aid journey for millions of students across hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide.
Shift Summit will be hosted entirely online and features both live and on-demand sessions for an attendee-centric experience. All Shift Summit sessions will be available on-demand for attendees through September.
The event highlights dozens of speakers, a high-profile keynote series, actionable breakout groups and professional development opportunities.
- Explore pathways to increased retention with Achieve Atlanta during “They Got into Your School. Student Financial Success Keeps Them There: Effective Models for Accelerating Retention Rates”
- Dive into higher ed’s regional challenges with The Birds of a Feather series, where higher ed pros will meet, connect and explore specific, regional challenges they face at their institutions.
- Join NPR’s Elissa Nadworny as she moderates a thoughtful panel discussion on the emergent emergency aid crisis and what it means for students and schools.

“A tremendous amount of thoughtful planning and work has gone into Shift Summit,” said Chris Chumley, COO at CampusLogic. “Attendees from across America are joining us virtually to experience what’s possible when you refuse to accept the status quo in an industry calling for change. Student Financial Success has already improved the lives of millions of students, and we’re eager to continue advancing that mission at Shift Summit.”
Throughout the event, attendees will discover three core principles that define Student Financial Success and learn how to apply them. The principles are: Cut Through Complexity, Unlock Every Dollar and Chart Personal Paths. Together, these key values break through financial barriers, which are the largest roadblock standing between students and degree completion.
“No student should be forced to leave school due to financial friction.” Chumley continued. “By the end of Shift Summit, every higher education leader who attends Shift will feel both inspired and armed with the necessary resources to see that vision through at their institutions.”
CampusLogic customers are also invited to CampusLogic University (CLU) on Friday, June 11, 2021. The customer-only seminar will walk through new features and client best practices.
