2022 North Central Region/National Learner-Centered Teaching Conference
Oct. 6-8, 2022
About the Conference
This is the 4th consecutive year of a collaborative conference partnership of 1890 land-grant universities, 1862 land-grant universities, and public and private universities who are focused on developing people in and through agriculture, food, natural resources, and human sciences.
This collaborative partnership combines three groups into one integrated conference: (1) 2022 North Central AAAE Conference; (2) National Conference on Learner-Centered Teaching (NCLCT); and, (3) the M.E.N.T.O.R. Convening. The NCLCT and M.E.N.T.O.R. projects focus on building capacities among Historically Black Colleges & Universities and Predominately White Institutions.
The conference will be held at a LEED-Certified hotel that is right on Broadway in downtown Columbia. We will be surrounded by the District's restaurants and bars and only blocks from the University of Missouri where we will spend part of the conference. You will enjoy city views from the eighth-floor rooftop bar and every stay starts with a Doubletree signature warm chocolate chip cookie.
