PHOENIX, AZ, JANUARY 21, 2020— CampusLogic, higher education’s leading student financial success platform, today announced the speaker lineup for EmpowerED20, taking place March 3-5, 2020. EmpowerED is the premier industry event where higher education professionals gather to collaborate and develop new solutions to drive student financial success—a key component to overall student success.
“EmpowerED offers an unparalleled opportunity to engage with higher education industry changemakers who are transforming the processes of financial aid into the discipline of student financial success. Being part of this event is powerful and energizing, providing a forum for smart and passionate people to come together with the singular focus of making college a financial possibility,” remarked Amy Glynn, Vice President of Student Financial Success at CampusLogic.
Anchored by keynote speakers Michael Sorrell, Ed.D., President of Paul Quinn College and David Kirp, Author of The College Dropout Scandal and Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, EmpowerED20 promises to offer insights from more than 30 higher education thought leaders and innovators.
General session speakers include Beth Akers, Author of Game of Loans and Senior Fellow at The Manhattan Institute; Daniel Barkowitz, Assistant Vice President of Financial Aid at Valencia College; David Burge, Vice President of Enrollment at George Mason University; Stephanie Marken, Executive Director of Education at Gallup; Allison Griffin, Senior Vice President at Whiteboard Advisors; Preston Silverman, CEO & Co-Founder of RaiseMe; Ryan Craig, Co-Founder and Director of University Ventures; and many more. Their combined experience and expertise come together in one invigorating event designed to help schools drive student financial success. They’ll be offering actionable insights that attendees can take back and immediately implement at their own institutions to improve access to higher education, drive more informed borrowing, and boost completion rates.
Previous attendees note the value of attending EmpowerED. “If I could describe this conference in one word, that word would be ‘game-changing.’ As an institution, we have to make sure that we’re innovative, that we’re able to be flexible, that we are leaders in this industry,” said Keyimani Alford, Vice President of Student Development, Madison Area Technical College.
“Stop thinking about the challenge as fixing college financial aid; instead look at it as maximizing student financial success. That little change in perspective unlocks a world of new solutions to some long-standing problems,” said Carlo Salerno, CampusLogic Vice President for Research. “The EmpowerED conference is a unique opportunity for student financial success leaders to build relationships and drive the next generation of solutions.”
