HERDI South Launch Success

Sixteen high-impact community college leaders met December 3 and 4 with senior executives from seven companies in the higher ed marketplace. Held at the Houston Four Seasons, it was the inaugural Higher Education Research and Development Institute South conference. Dr. Jim Catanzaro, HERDI South Director observed, “Our launch was even stronger than we projected. We heard nothing but praise from company executives for our college leaders and virtually all participants rated their panel experience excellent.” Cengage Learning, Dynamic Campus, EdFinancial, Ferrilli, Intellus Learning, and Pearson brought teams to the table. Ferrilli sponsored the closing Banquet and ZogoTech the Board Reception. Additional companies have already expressed interest in next year’s conference as well as presidents who desire to be added to the HERDI South roster.
