Be disruptive. Go beyond.

From the beginning, our ELEVATE User Retreat has been an opportunity to gather insights from unexpected sources, then collaborate to apply these lessons within higher education. Yes, we talk about texting. But that’s the just the tip of the iceberg (or palm tree, in this case). Any topic is fair game if it helps move our industry forward.

Now in its third year, the 2019 edition of ELEVATE will be no different—yet completely unique. Get ready to go beyond with an exciting, new location and brand new presentations that will help your campus shatter the status quo.

“The best way to help Puerto Rico is to book there”

The New York Times

Adversity can be the catalyst for renewal. Nowhere is this currently more evident than Puerto Rico. In 2017, the island was devastated by back-to-back major hurricanes in the span of two weeks. Now, two years later, in the wake of unprecedented destruction, the Island of Enchantment is earning a reputation for innovation, leadership, and resiliency.

And it’s for these reasons, and many more, that Puerto Rico is the ideal location for ELEVATE 2019.

Making a positive impact.

While there are many uplifting stories emerging from Puerto Rico, there’s no question that recovery is still real and ongoing. To do our part, Mongoose will be donating a portion of the proceeds from ELEVATE to support the rebuilding efforts.
We’re also supporting as many local vendors and services as possible leading up to and during the retreat.
