The Way Up

Developing Women Leaders to Enhance Iowa Higher Education

Welcome to The Way Up Conference

The 2024 The Way Up Conference has been scheduled.


For over thirty-five years, women in the State of Iowa have hosted The Way Up Conference to assist women in higher education institutions as they continue to develop their leadership and administrative skills and expertise. The conference has always been designed to provide value for presenters and participants as well as networking opportunities for all.

The Fall 2024 Conference will celebrate thirty-seven years of growth, development and friendship.

The Theme for the 2024 conference is:  Knowledge, Growth and Perseverance on The Way Up


Consider joining us this year at The Way Up XXXVII Conference on November 7-8, 2024, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Conference Center, Coralville, Iowa.   


The Way Up conference program committee has issued a Call For Proposals for concurrent sessions for the 2024 conference.  See the link for details.
