In October 2009 the State University of New York at Cortland hosted an academic conference to discuss current issues and future possibilities for women in academia. The Succeeding as Women in Higher Education Conference provided a venue for formalizing and making visible the discussions taking place in the cloisters of the academy. Participants from around the globe shared insights through a variety of paper presentations, speeches, workshops, and discussions. Conversations were guided by the desire to answer a fundamental question: Is higher education an equitable professional environment for women in the twenty-first century? This special volume of Wagadu highlights critical manuscripts and transcripts to represent the dynamic dialogue of the conference.
