2019 IC3 Regional Forum Schedule

IC3 Regional Forums Expanded in 2019

We are excited to announce that in 2019, we are expanding the IC3 Regional Forums to include a series of 30 one-day regional events in high schools across South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Oceania, organized by the IC3 Committees. Like the Annual IC3 Conference, the goal of the IC3 Regional Forums is to bring together school leaders, college counselors and teachers with higher education representatives to discuss counseling and admissions practices.

By locating the event at a local school, we hope to further encourage diversity, equity and access among high schools passionate about the benefits of higher education, one of the best means of closing the skill gap and expanding opportunity.

30 IC3 Regional Forums are being planned for 2019. Dates and locations will continue to be announced here on a rolling basis.

2019 Locations

The IC3 Regional Forums will be held tentatively between 9:00am to 5:00pm. Host schools, dates and venues are subject to change.

Thank you to our 2019 IC3 Regional Forum Host Schools. Learn more about our host high schools:
