Elevate your expertise at General Assembly

Kick off a new academic year and get inspired at General Assembly, Friday, August 22, at the Hyatt Regency Austin hotel (208 Barton Springs Rd.).

The day will begin at 8 a.m. with breakfast and a chance to visit information tables and take fun photos at the photo booth. Don’t forget to get a raffle ticket at the greeter table for a chance to win prizes.

Keynote speaker Dr. Rob Johnstone will present “Really Moving the Needle on Student Completion: Inquiry, Pathways, and Lessons from the Aspen Prize.” Johnstone is founder and president of the National Center for Inquiry & Improvement, which helps colleges and universities improve and build upon their existing student success strategies.

Employees can choose from more than 40 afternoon workshops focusing on professional and technical skill development. See the complete list of workshops. Workshops will be at Highland Business Center from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and 3:15 to 4:45 p.m.
