Our 2023 conference will feature three educational session blocks, a UHS Talks session featuring short, TEDTalk style presentations, and a keynote speaker.
Loren J. Blanchard will be our 2023 UHS SAES Conference Keynote Speaker. He joined the University of Houston-Downtown as its seventh president on March 15, 2021.
During his tenure at UHD, Dr. Blanchard has launched the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan: A New Paradigm with Student Success as the University’s number one priority. Since the implementation of that plan, UHD has made progress toward multiple interrelated goals through organizational changes that ensure systematic first-year support, strategic and ongoing academic advising, and provisions to meet students’ basic needs.
A first-generation college graduate, Dr. Blanchard holds a bachelor's degree in Speech Pathology Education from Xavier University of Louisiana, a master's degree in Education from McNeese State University, and a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Georgia.
We are honored to have him serve as this year’s keynote speaker because we know that his message will be impactful to the important job that we do every day, which is to serve our students.
