CAUBO 2024 Annual Conference Call for Content Proposals is now open!

Proposals accepted now through Wednesday, October 18, 2023

CAUBO builds the capacity of leaders in the higher education sector by connecting them with peers and information enabling insights into effective practices, new and different perspectives.

Share your expertise, experience, and efforts to strive towards excellence with your peers in this in-person event from June 3-5 in Montreal! CAUBO is seeking content proposals for the 2024 Annual Conference and Functional Seminars.

CAUBO is looking for energetic and engaging speakers to deliver diverse, interactive, and thought-provoking conference presentations. We are looking for a combination of presentations that provide an overview of the topic and also those that provide a “deeper dive” regarding the topic.

We are particularly interested in proposals that showcase a program, activity, or initiative that:

  • provides diverse perspectives in response to societal trends, practices, or challenges facing HE (e.g., social justice, climate change, EDI, recruitment, and retention),
  • promotes campus wellness (e.g., mental health, employee satisfaction, institutional culture),
  • highlights post-pandemic programs/practices and policies with an institutional impact (e.g., flexible work arrangements, space management, digitalization),
  • provides insights into mitigating risks facing HE administration (e.g., sustainability, internationalization,  campus safety),
  • proposes means to address issues of financial sustainability such as revenue diversification, cost management, organizational efficiencies, etc.
  • fosters improved quality of service delivery, and or enhances productivity and efficiencies within a team or an institution,
  • highlights how data governance has been used in a team or an institution.

We want to hear from you. Find out more about the content guidelines and how you can submit a conference presentation proposal by clicking here.

About the CAUBO Annual Conference

The conference is CAUBO’s flagship professional development event, and it brings together university administrators from across Canada working in a variety of functional areas such as finance, human resources, treasury, procurement, facilities, internal audit, and IT. Conference sessions focus on trends and hot topics in higher education administration, with the aim of sending delegates home with best practices and information they can put to use right away at their jobs. Evening social and networking events provide a great opportunity to relax and reconnect with friends and colleagues and enjoy great food and entertainment in interesting and vibrant venues.

The conference location rotates among CAUBO’s four regions: Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, and West. CAUBO’s member universities take turns hosting the conference, and the host selects the annual theme. More than 700 people attend the CAUBO conference annually.

You can also search for recorded content from previous conferences via the Knowledge Centre.
