Transitioning to Tomorrow: College and Career Readiness for Success

World Future Forum will annually offer a unique opportunity for school administrators, academics, and other professionals—from around the world—to present a wide array of perspectives and expertise in the pursuit of excellence in post-high school education.

Most importantly, this group of academics will share the best studies and practices for one common goal and our priority: to ensure transition, college persistence, and career readiness.

This  ​​brand-new conference is spearheaded by the F​uture Institute Research Center (FIRC). The members of the Center are from the following institutions: Lindenwood University, University of Wisconsin- Madison, Bradley University, University of Northern Iowa, and Future Institute. FIRC plans and conducts rigorous research on college and career success, and disseminates the findings, which leads to data-driven decision making. ​

Situated in Chicago, World Future Forum will bring together attendees from an array of countries. ​Presenters will display a variety of topics to help enrich attendees’​ knowledge of preparing students in today’s job market and workforce.

VENUE

The story of downtown Chicago’s Palmer House Hilton is one of romance and undeniable charm.

By the turn of the century, the Palmer House had become Chicago’s liveliest social center, hosting a long list of prominent figures—including those ranging from U.S. presidents to Charles Dickens to Oscar Wilde.

In 1933, the Golden Empire Dining Room of Palmer House was converted into an entertainment epicenter. It hosted legendary entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Harry Belafonte, Louis Armstrong, and Liberace.

*Special discounted rates have been offered should you choose to stay in Palmer House Hilton Chicago.
