Leading higher education to a more inclusive, just,
and equitable future


The Society for the Future of Higher Education (SFHE) is an incubator and advocate for ideas, strategies, and pedagogies to lead higher education to a more inclusive, just, and equitable future. In order to fulfill our mission, we have committed to three years of programming focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.


SFHE invites scholars from a variety of institutions to develop innovative ideas to lead higher education to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future. Through our annual conference and programs, members have the opportunity to create teams, receive feedback on projects, and meet with mentors who can offer advice and encouragement.


SFHE hosts an annual conference over a long weekend, typically in mid-July. We rotate our locations among college campuses in different regions.  Our conference prioritizes in depth discussions in varied disciplines, time and space for work on innovative ideas, and informal time to network and socialize.
