Sadly and unexpectedly, in June 2015 the CAUBO Community lost one of its most active and distinguished members: Patricia Hibbitts, known to most as Pat. Her participation in the advancement of the higher education administration sector was unparalleled. A huge supporter of and believer in life-long learning and in the education sector as a whole, Pat was passionate about education from many perspectives, an avid learner, and a substantial contributor when it came to presenting and sharing her experiences and insight.
In Pat’s honor, and in support of her commitment to continuing education, CAUBO has established a professional development bursary. Annually, CAUBO will extend a complimentary conference registration (including a pre-conference seminar) to one institutional member.
To be eligible for this bursary you must:
- Be currently employed at a CAUBO member university in one of the following functional areas: Academic Administration, Facilities Management, Finance, Human Resources, Internal Audit, Procurement, Risk Management, Taxes, Treasury & Investment
- Have been working for three years or less in a university environment (at time of application)
- Not have attended a CAUBO annual conference before
Applications for the bursary may be self-submitted or submitted by a supervisor; however, all applications must have supervisor sign-off to ensure that the recipient has the approval to attend the conference. One recipient will be selected annually by lottery from the pool of all eligible submissions.
