HETMA@UCX USA will also offer engaging networking events, including a HETMA@UCX USA Opening Night Pre-Party at Bangers in Austin, and the HETMA@UCX USA Meetup at UCX USA’s Opening Night Party.
“HETMA is excited to host both educational sessions and social networking opportunities at UCX USA that are specifically aimed at helping us be successful in the new reality within higher education,” said Joe Way, PhD, CTS.
