Ever really want to know what’s inside the minds of those folks usually standing behind the tables in the Exhibit Hall? Sit them down for a candid Q&A about their mission, vision, and purpose? Or dig in to some of the perplexing ways that partners/vendors and institutional leaders interact with one another?

With a combined 25 years of experience on the other side of the table drape drinking too much coffee during conference breaks, Chris and Cherron have seen the wondering looks as you reach for a pen, or a mug, or the candy dish. And we’re super curious about what you are curious about.

In this session, we’ll reveal the Top 10 questions for folks like us from folks who walk in your campus-centric shoes, gleaned from our survey of academic friends and colleagues. We’ll also take your questions — ask us anything! — and explore the nature of relationships between companies and campuses while delving into the common ground we (mostly) all share in the quest to help education power more good in the world.
