NACUBO 2021 Annual Meeting

July 27–30, 2021


Endurance. Strength. Support.
Join your peers July 27–30 for the NACUBO 2021 Annual Meeting as we reflect on higher education’s accomplishments and renew our commitment to the work that lies ahead.
From the onset of the pandemic, you have endured uncertainty, been a source of strength and expertise, and provided unwavering support to your colleagues and campus community.
NACUBO is committed to continuing to provide you with the tools and information necessary to navigate these transformative times.
The online program will include—
  • Three general sessions to challenge and inspire us
  • Concurrent sessions for you to customize your learning
  • Moderated roundtables to connect with your peers
During the Expo Hall you'll have the opportunity to connect with corporate partners and industry experts offering the products and services you need to succeed.
Whether you're looking for best practices and applicable strategies—or want to focus on innovation and solutions—you'll find that the NACUBO annual meeting is the perfect place for both education and professional networking related to the business of higher education.
NEW this year, NACUBO member institutions may register unlimited attendees from the same institution for one group rate.
Single day passes are also available (see section below rate cards).
