About the Midwestern Regional Forum

The Midwestern Regional Forum is an annual gathering of professionals from across K–12, higher education, and college access professions. This conference offers dynamic speakers, networking opportunities, and a wealth of sessions and workshops led by experienced colleagues. The regional forum provides an opportunity for great minds in education to discuss hot topics as well as longstanding concerns related to academic readiness, educational opportunity, and student success. Embedded in the regional forum are our annual meetings of all members, as well as our meetings of the member delegates of each assembly: Academic, Counseling and Admission, and CSS/Financial Assistance.

Program Planning Committee

The regional forum Program Planning Committee, a group of outstanding educators from schools and colleges across the region, plays a critical role by planning a rich and meaningful program for attendees.

Thank you to the members of the 2018 Midwestern Regional Forum Program Planning Committee.
