We missed a blog post last week because I was in New Orleans at the Higher Ed Summit 2016!

It was so much fun and I learned all about the coolest stuff happening in Salesforce for Higher Ed. Here's some reasons why you shouldn't have missed the Higher Ed Summit (and should definitely attend the next one): 1) Lots and lots of brilliant higher ed brains - all in one conference: Whether you're curious about what Stanford is doing with data or interested in tracking emotional intelligence for research using Salesforce, the biggest Universities are using Salesforce in new and innovative ways, and the folks building those solutions are all right there! You could have had lunch with them, or attended one of their sessions.

2) You've got questions? They've got Answers! - Not only was the entire Higher Ed Advisory Council present, there were lots of opportunities to talk with them, ask them questions, and even attend a live HED Office Hours! (If you missed the chance, you can still catch Higher Ed Office Hours on the regularly scheduled phone conference! Check our the Higher Ed group on the Hub for more info!)

3) The Roots of MusicOk, so you won't be able to see them every Higher Ed Summit, but they were a highlight of my #HESummit16 experience.

4) HEDA!!!!! - HEDA (Higher Education Data Architecture) is the newest release of epic from Salesforce for Higher Ed. It builds on the Nonprofit Starter Pack model for a low-cost solution for Higher Ed Institutions right out of the box. I'm excited to see where this will go!

5) Girlforce - Girlforce is launching into Higher Ed and we hosted a Girlforce Happiest Hour at the Higher Ed Summit. We have a presence at many Salesforce events and we're always happy connect and learn from each other!

If you're in Higher Ed, make sure to connect with others in the Power of US Hub. It's where the party's happening![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
