St. John's, Newfoundland
Re-think what you know about university administration. Challenge yourself to make waves. Forget the common ways of doing things. The 2010 CAUBO conference challenges you to try something different, in a place that’s anything but ordinary – St. John’s, Newfoundland. Rock the Common encourages each and every one of us to think fresh. To rock the boat. To challenge the conventional.
This year’s theme is roughly based on the 1980s hit song, “Rock the Casbah.” Just as the band The Clash challenged conventional music, we want to challenge conventional thinking. We purposely created a theme that is vague and uncommon to start a dialogue long before people reach Newfoundland, aka “The Rock.” In today’s economic crisis it’s never been so important to embrace challenges in uncommon ways. That is our goal with the 2010 conference – Rock the Common: Challenge Convention.
