Course Description

Please note that this course is only offered in English at this time.

This course provides a comprehensive overview of university culture and governance. The objective is to help administrators, new and established, to better understand the university context and work more effectively and efficiently within the unique university environment.

Among the longest standing institutions in the world, universities adhere to fundamental principles and values that have been championed by academics from the earliest of times. Those principles and values continue to shape the modern university and contribute to an environment that is substantially different from that encountered in private or public sector organizations. To be effective in a university, it is essential that administrators understand and respect these values and principles and adapt their practices accordingly.

The unique nature of universities and the academic culture impact how administrators work, interact with individuals, consult, bring forward ideas or plans for review or approval and implement new initiatives. They are experienced by all administrators whether in academic units, central services, student services or ancillary services.

CAUBO 2020 Cancelled

CAUBO 2020: Cancellation of the CAUBO guestroom block at the Westin Harbour Castle hotel

As we informed you a few days ago, CAUBO 2020 has been cancelled due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. This is to advise you that the Westin Harbour Castle will be cancelling all reservations found under the CAUBO guestroom block. If you reserved a guestroom in the CAUBO block, it will be automatically cancelled by end of day today.

If you booked a room at a different hotel in Toronto, you are responsible for cancelling that reservation.

The CAUBO 2021 Annual Conference will take place in Montreal, Quebec from May 30–June 1, 2021, hosted by McGill University. We hope to see all of you there.

Until then, stay healthy.


CAUBO 2020 update relative to COVID-19

We will be in contact with registrants and sponsors shortly about refunds.
