The Hope Center

Convening Draft

Every year, we gather together passionate people to discuss the landscape of higher education in the context of #RealCollege students and their experiences. The goal of our conference is to help improve connections and collaborations, support a national membership organization of campus food pantries, and develop products, policy agendas, and practice guides to help serve students and institutions better. Check out the 2019 conference report.

#RealCollege 2020 will be October 10-11 at Rutgers University-Camden

Registration opens May 2020.

We are looking forward to seeing you at #RealCollege 2020 in Camden, New Jersey. This year will be the 5th anniversary of the #RealCollege movement. As the date approaches, there will be more information, including how to register and keynote speakers. We expect the registration price to remain at approximately $250. There will be pre-conference events on October 9 and post-conference events on October 12.
