Higher Education Planning in Asia (HEPA) Forum 2016

The HEPA Forum provides a platform for senior university planners and administrators across Asia to come together to interact, share best practices, and network - there have been few such opportunities in the region.

This will be the fifth year that HEPA is held. The previous four fora, held in Hong Kong, Seoul, Beijing, and Singapore respectively, attracted over 230 participants from institutions across Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, and US. They rated the fora positively and found the presentation/discussion topics highly relevant to their work. HEPA continues to spur interest and momentum for experience sharing and peer mentoring amongst Asian institutions.

HEPA Forum 2016 will be held in Sydney, Australia, on 14-15 April, and will be hosted by The University of Newcastle (UON).

The theme of the 2016 Forum is "Shaping Strategy, Delivering the Vision". It will be a 2-day event which includes presentations, interactive sessions, panel discussions, networking coffee breaks, lunches, and options for city tours will be suggested.
