The Higher Education Web Professionals Association (HighEdWeb) is an international organization of web professionals working at institutions of higher education. We design, develop, manage and map the futures of higher education websites.  Our community is active all year round and comes together at our Annual Conference to learn, share and network. HighEdWeb also runs a series of master-class intensive Academies in the areas of integrated marketing, leadership, and technical development, as well as sponsors smaller, targeted regional events around the United States and hosts the LINK Online Journal.

The HighEdWeb Annual Conference is the conference created by and for higher education Web professionals. It offers four days of high-quality presentations, internationally recognized keynote speakers and outstanding networking events – all at an affordable rate. From web developers, marketers and programmers to managers, designers, writers and all team members in between, HighEdWeb provides valuable professional development for all those who want to explore the unique Web issues facing colleges and universities.
