Nearly 3 million students drop out of higher education every year due to financial reasons. 40% of those accepted into college fail to enroll. The implications for institutions, students, and society are monumental. Ed tech innovators, higher education leaders, and industry insiders join forces at EmpowerED to capitalize on technology's potential to drive student financial success—a crucial component of student success.
What last year's attendees said
If I could describe this conference in one word, that word would be game-changing. As an institution we have to make sure that we're innovative, that we're able to be flexible, that we are leaders in this industry.

My key takeaways are to change how I approach the younger generation and their expectations of the educational experience. And how important collaboration is—not just across industries, but across campus.

It's an opportunity to learn more about technology, how we can help our students, our institutions, and become better at what we do. If you haven't been, you should come.
