"Our Valley Our Potential:
Cultivating Higher Education and Student Affairs Leaders"

The Central Valley is at the heart of California, the communities here plant roots here, and our social justice-oriented leaders help cultivate knowledge for generations to come. This inaugural conference will provide emerging and current higher education and student affairs leaders with an opportunity to engage in learning from their peers and ignited actionable steps to advance the future of higher education in the Central Valley. Through this conference, we advance the Higher Education Administration and Leadership (HEAL) program mission to develop scholar-practitioners and prepare ethical and social justice-oriented leaders in higher education for diverse communities in the Central Valley. Participation in HESACV is free. We welcome all to participate.
