The mission of HighEdWeb is to educate digital professionals who work at higher education institutions.
We accomplish our mission by providing educational resources and opportunities that develop knowledge, skills and abilities, all with a focus on the digital issues facing colleges and universities.
We provide opportunities for higher education digital professionals to learn and grow through conferences, workshops and on-demand access to recorded sessions.
We offer opportunities to connect with HighEdWebbers on an ongoing basis, through our Slack workspace, community group discussions and other networking events.

Strategic plan set for 2021-23
The board approved a strategic plan to guide the association through 2023. In everything that we do, HighEdWeb considers diversity, equity and inclusion as well as financial responsibility. With that in mind, our goals include increasing membership and access to member resources, ensuring community awareness of offerings and providing meaningful opportunities for engagement.
First Analytics Summit held
HighEdWeb hosted its first Analytics Summit on April 29, 2021. This event was facilitated online and focused on utilizing web analytics more effectively in higher education. Topics addressed included Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Google Data Studio, social metrics, email metrics and SEO. The second Analytics Summit will be held in April 2022.
Member discounts to events
Paid memberships now have the benefit of receiving discounts ranging from $10-50 off registration for events including the Accessibility Summit, Analytics Summit and Annual Conference. Additional discounts are offered at select regional events.
Educational events model to guide operations
Professional development options continue to grow for HighEdWeb members. The Accessibility Summit, Analytics Summit and community groups are examples of some of the recent additions. To ensure the training meets higher education’s needs and the Association’s quality standards, we created an operational model to guide the event planning. HighEdWeb will revisit this model annually and update with lessons learned and industry trends.
Monthly e-newsletter launched
In August 2021, the HighEdWeb marketing and communications committee launched a monthly e-newsletter to provide members with regular board updates, highlights from the Link Journal, links to podcasts and other digital resources, and event reminders.
Free institutional memberships for HBCUs
HighEdWeb — and the higher education community — is at its best when a broad range of ideas are shared and understood. To create a pathway for a more diverse community, the Association invites accredited HBCUs to become institutional members at no cost through 2030.
Board of Directors
HighEdWeb has a strong financial foundation and is in a good position to continue meeting the learning needs of our community.
