The Carnegie Foundation’s 2022 Summit on Improvement in Education is scheduled for March 27–29 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront in San Diego, CA. The general conference begins with an opening keynote at 4:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 27. The conference’s closing keynote will end no later than 3:30 p.m. PT on Tuesday, March 29. We encourage you to keep this in mind when booking your travel.
Pre-conference courses require an additional fee and are only open to those registered to attend the general conference in person. These sessions will be held on Sunday, March 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. PT.
Carnegie Foundation will not cancel the 2022 Summit. Should circumstances no longer allow for an in-person conference, we will pivot to a fully virtual Summit experience, as was the case for our 2020 and 2021 events. In-person registrations will automatically switch over to remote registrations. Refund of the difference between registration fees may be requested. Registrants who choose not to participate remotely may request a refund for the full registration fee.
The Carnegie Foundation is not responsible for travel, lodging, transportation, or other fees paid independently of conference registration.
Remote attendees will access Summit content and activities via the Summit Web Platform. More details will be shared soon.
Summit registrants (both in-person and remote) will have access to recorded sessions for on-demand viewing via the Summit Digital Library. Please note that not all Summit sessions will be recorded.
We are developing our volunteer program. If interested, please fill out this form.
A list of registered attendees who have opted in to having their information shared will be included on the Summit app and web platform. Please note that only names, titles, and organizations will be available.
Breakout session materials will be available on the Summit app and web platform.
Please visit our Lodging and Transportation page for details.

Registration for a pre-conference course is an additional $625 and only available to those attending the Summit in-person. See the Registration page for more details.
A confirmation email will be sent to the email address provided when you register. Please be sure to check your junk mail folder as sometimes the confirmation email will show up there. If you do not receive a confirmation within 48 hours, contact Summit Registration (email@example.com).
Summit registration cannot be shared between multiple individuals.
I already registered and paid the individual price, but now I want to add members to my group and receive the group discount. How can I do this?
Additional individuals cannot be added to an existing registration. To take advantage of the group discount, you must register your entire group of at least five attendees during the same registration session. If you are not sure whether you will be part of a larger group, please wait to register until you have confirmed with your group members.
Pre-conference course enrollment is available only to those who have registered for the in-person general conference.
To add a pre-conference course to an existing registration, please contact Summit Registration (firstname.lastname@example.org).
