Leading higher education to a more inclusive, just, and equitable future


The Society for the Future of Higher Education (SFHE) is an incubator and advocate for ideas, strategies, and pedagogies to lead higher education to a more inclusive, just, and equitable future. In order to fulfill our mission, we have committed to three years of programming focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.


SFHE invites scholars from a variety of institutions to develop innovative ideas to lead higher education to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future. Through our annual conference and programs, members have the opportunity to create teams, receive feedback on projects, and meet with mentors who can offer advice and encouragement.


SFHE hosts an annual conference over a long weekend, typically in mid-July. We rotate our locations among college campuses in different regions.  Our conference prioritizes in depth discussions in varied disciplines, time and space for work on innovative ideas, and informal time to network and socialize.

Our Work

Reading for the Common Good
Fall 2023 Selection

Our selection for the Fall 2023 Reading for the Common Good program is Inclusive Teaching: Strategies for Equity in the Classroom by Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy. This selection is tied to our 2024 Conference theme, Equity and Community: From Theory to Practice. An SFHE member must lead the group, but anyone can participate. Groups can meet online or in person.

Members are encouraged to form discussion groups of 8-10 colleagues and meet regularly. Let us know if you have a group and we’ll provide the books!

To participate, contact Sandy at smcallister@sfhe.org
