Maricopa Community Colleges Chancellor Maria Harper-Marinick, Ph.D. will be the keynote speaker for the 2018 Arizona Women in Higher Education (AWHE) Conference on May 31 and June 1, 2018, where she will encourage and address female educators across the state.

The theme, ‘Transcending Barriers: Embracing Opportunities for Change,’ allows attendees to navigate the changing landscape of higher education. Additional keynote speakers include Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor of Pima Community College Dolores Duran-Cerda, Ph.D. and Interim President and CEO of Expect More Arizona Erin Hart.
