Stay tuned! The 2018 Exchange agenda will be available soon.

The conference will officially kick-off in the morning on Thursday, April 5 and end in the early afternoon on Saturday, April 7.


The Exchange agenda features over 100 speakers sharing their insights, lessons learned, and challenges as they turn higher education into a tool for social change and impact. About 70% of the Exchange content is selected directly from our community of participants. 

If you are a presenter, please note that:

  • All selected presenters are responsible for expenses incurred in conjunction with the 2018 Ashoka U Exchange including registration, housing, and travel.
  • Proposal submission topics cannot be changed after the review and selection process.
  • Majority of speakers are placed in a session with 2-3 additional speakers and a facilitator. Ashoka U will edit presentation titles and session descriptions for consistency and clarity.
  • Acceptance notifications will be sent out in October 16, 2017.
  • Presenters must register by December 15, 2017 to guarantee their place on the program.
