April 15-17 2012 - Held at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, on the beautiful island of Maui, HI, the conference offered attendees a variety of informational sessions to help improve the programs offered and to keep up on current trends in the field of distance education.

Sessions included: research, educational and business standards, the future of higher education accreditation, career counseling, best practices in admissions and enrollments, student satisfaction and achievement, the continuum of eLearning, relationships with state agencies, and legal issues affecting educational institutions. In addition, there was a town hall meeting focusing on outcomes assessment as a measure of student success.

On the third and final day of the conference was the annual awards luncheon. Attending the conference from California Coast University were President Tom Neal, Executive Vice President Shelly Marquardt, Vice President Dr. Murl Tucker, and Director of University Planning and Compliance Natasha Franklin.

Thank you to DETC for another outstanding annual conference!
