It is my pleasure to welcome members of the Adult Higher Education Alliance to Orlando and the University of Central Florida. Lifelong learning, something we all aspire to, is an important component of adult higher education. Our national demographic of individuals living longer and enjoying more rewarding lifestyles is recognition of the important work you are doing. By providing the adult community with educational opportunities across a broad spectrum of disciplines and interests, yours is a valued and respected contribution to society. Your conference theme “Adult and Higher Education in the Contemporary World: Its Role in Cultural Literacy” is very much aligned with the notion of who we are. Therefore we are honored to host the 2015 AHEA Conference.
During your time here please take advantage of all that UCF and Orlando has to offer, as we extend a welcome and best wishes for an informative and productive conference.
