NETA: Where everybody knows your name.

Compact and beautiful, Burlington is home to a thriving arts scene, museums and educational opportunities, great shopping, three colleges and a university, as well as a full range of four-season outdoor pursuits. Fountains, a brick-paved pedestrian mall, and historic buildings provide the backdrop for the Church Street Marketplace, where specialty shops and national retailers mingle with restaurants and cultural venues. Outdoor cafes, street vendors and entertainers keep things lively long after sundown. A short walk from Church Street takes visitors to nearby Burlington Waterfront Park, offering ferry crossings, excursion boats, and a 12.5-mile walking/bike path that connects to the Lake Champlain Islands via bike ferry in summer.

2023 Keynote Highlight

IN Pursuit of Inclusive Excellence:
Enacting a Shared Equity Leadership Strategy in Higher Education

As U.S. higher education continues to face unprecedented headwinds, economic and demographic pressures show no signs of abating. Meanwhile, many institutions continue to struggle to develop comprehensive strategies to advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in a tumultuous social climate. This keynote will provide an introduction to skills, strategies, and frameworks that can help institutions develop a collaborative approach towards creating a more equitable and inclusive climate for historically and systemically marginalized students.
