What’s Happening Today: Thursday, March 9

It’s the last day of SXSW EDU 2023! This week has flown by, but the energy is not slowing down — and there is still so much to look forward to today!

Be sure to stop by the SXSW EDU Bookstore and grab a read for your trip home written by your favorite speakers and participants from this year’s event. Head over before it closes at 3pm CT.

We’re closing out the day of programming with an powerful conversation featuring Kimberly Mata-Rubio, Nick Allen Ph.D., Odis Johnson Jr., and Sewell Chan in the closing Keynote Safer Schools: Students, Educators, & Mental Health One Year After Uvalde in partnership with the Texas Tribune at 1:00pm.

Before you leave, we hope that you will join us for the SXSW EDU Closing Party at Lustre Pearl where we will celebrate the inspiring last four days before we say goodbye.
