Join the Canadian Society for the Study of Higher Education (CSSHE) at Congress 2021 for what is sure to be a conference like no other. For the first time in the association’s history, the CSSHE conference will be fully virtual, with a schedule full of stimulating and informative presentations that can all be accessed from the comfort of your home. 

In keeping with this year’s Congress theme, Northern Relations, the conference will emphasize themes of diversity, inclusion and decolonization across a wide range of topics in Higher Education. Learn more about some of the biggest issues and questions facing the post-secondary education sector, in both Canada and across the world.  

While we will all miss the encounters that are facilitated by in-person meetings, we are confident in delivering an engaging conference experience, while still presenting opportunities to network with your colleagues and experts in the field of higher education. See you at Congress!
