Insights from our latest Roundtables

Every Mainstay Community Roundtable is a chance to discuss emerging challenges and share unique approaches for navigating the evolving higher ed landscape

Your challenges. Your ideas. Your community.

The Mainstay Community is a place where higher ed innovators (like you) can ask tough questions, share openly, and benefit from the unique perspectives of fellow experts and leaders.


Small, focused Roundtables spark more engaging and productive conversations.


Tap into a network of hundreds of leaders and innovators in higher education.


Bring your biggest challenges and share what has worked for you.

Let's do this together

After 20+ years in higher ed, I’ve seen things change and transform in so many ways. In the past 2 years, these shifts have challenged our perspective and pushed us to evolve faster than ever.

I’ve always found that the best way to stay focused and inspired during times of uncertainty is by connecting with other leaders who understand higher education’s unique challenges. We’ve created a space for that — where you can share emerging strategies, celebrate your successes, and tackle your biggest issues together.

I am so happy to have you be part of the Mainstay Community, and I look forward to seeing you at the next Roundtable!
