The theme for CAUBO 2005 is "The Art of Business." By bringing together "art" and "business," it encourages university leaders to be creative and original in finding solutions to meet increasing demands and expectations. Whether the issue is focused on the individual or the university, the decisions we make can have an impact on a broad range of university activities. Our universities require leaders who are skilled, creative and consider the many facets of an issue as part of their decision-making processes. CAUBO 2005 will provide a forum for university leaders to share knowledge, creative ideas and imaginative solutions.
