The relationship between the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) and the Chief Business Officer (CBO) has become even more critical to ensure effective leadership of regional public colleges and universities. The CAO and CBO—together—must develop and execute a clear strategy, align priorities and resources, and innovate.
To better understand and support this relationship, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) will bring CAOs and CBOs together to have deep conversations and to gain practical tools to use to achieve equitable student success while acknowledging the unique economic challenges—and opportunities—facing AASCU institutions and other regional public universities.
Interactive, conversation-based sessions will include:
- Working across cultures: the CAO-CBO partnership
- Creating thriving institutions through CAO-CBO collaboration
- Managing costs to keep higher education accessible and affordable
The program will include an in-person gathering on Tuesday, Sept. 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET and on Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET.
Registration will close on Friday, Sept. 16.
Registration is limited to pairs of Chief Academic Officers and Chief Business Officers from 30 regional public institutions. Content will be specific to leaders from regional public universities. Registrants must be members of AASCU or NACUBO.
Both the CAO and CBO from the same institution must be committed to participating. A President may join the pair if desired.
This symposium is open to regional public institutions that are AASCU and/or NACUBO members.
$500 per participant ($1,000/pair)
Each member of a campus pair must register individually.
Felicia Durham, AASCU registrar, if you have any questions.
