Louisville Kentucky – July 30th - August 1st, 2015 – The Blue Americas 2015 Conference was fantastic! It was also the largest Blue event to date, with over 50% more attendees and institutions than the 2014 edition.

The conference included client-led sessions and panels on a variety of topics including Blue's roadmap, Bluepulse's formative impact, strengthening Blue implementations, Blue Text Analytics, course evaluations at scale, and many more!

Attendees enjoyed academic networking, a tour of Churchill Downs—the home of the Kentucky Derby—and the lush amenities of the historic Brown Hotel.

A huge thank you to institutions who led sessions! Here is a partial list of the presenting institutions: Indiana University Bloomington, the University of Louisville, Sheridan College, the University of Minnesota, Virginia Commonwealth University, Northwestern University, the University of Pennsylvania, Oregon Health and Sciences University, Simon Fraser University, Washington State University, the University of Toronto, and the Auckland University of Technology.
