2013 WASC ARC - Register Now!
Dear Colleague,

The challenges and changes keep coming at warp speed. Where will they take us? None of us have a crystal ball, but we do have the 2013 WASC Academic Resource conference – and a terrific line-up of speakers, workshops, and other features to help us envision and plan for the future of higher education.

For more information on the program and to register, go to wascarc.org. For a hotel reservation at the beautiful Hilton Bay Front San Diego, click here.

We’ve kept the topics timely, the prices low – and the location on the water, just steps from San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter, can’t be beat. So make plans now to attend the western region’s premier event for ideas, networking, and accreditation.

Best wishes for 2013.

Barbara Wright
