Affordable Degrees-at-Scale Symposium

The Affordable Degrees-at-Scale (ADSS) Symposium is the preeminent event for higher education leaders to engage in intensive conversations on the strategies, trends, and challenges associated with scaled degree programs. ADSS offers a unique opportunity for networking with educators and technologists from institutions across the higher education landscape. One of the core benefits of this symposium is its ability to facilitate candid, meaningful conversations amongst participants. Attendees (both virtual and in-person) will explore best practices that enable institutions to create, grow, and sustain at-scale, affordable degree programs.  

This year's event will offer a select portion of the experience virtually for a reduced cost. In-person registration includes access to the full symposium, including all sessions and networking events.  

Topics that will be explored include the impact and experience of the online student, teaching assistants, program design, and diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEI&A).  


Registration opens October 24, 2022. 

Symposium Location

The in-person portions of the symposium will be held at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Midtown Atlanta in the heart of Tech Square - Atlanta's thriving innovation community. Easily accessible from Interstates 75/85 and just 15 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
