Meeting Theme: Transform | Lead | Advocate

NACUBO is excited to host the NACUBO 2023 Annual Meeting in Orlando. We look forward to connecting with colleagues to reflect on our members’ role in transforming higher education to meet tomorrow’s demands. NACUBO’s annual meeting gathers almost two thousand campus and sector leaders who are dedicated advocates for their institutions and students. Together with our members, NACUBO advocates for smart and sensible higher education policies. We hope you’ll join us in promoting the spirit of this year’s theme by submitting an idea for a session.


Session Content

NACUBO encourages proposals that showcase future trends; offer unique ideas; share interesting stories/case studies; foster diversity, equity, and inclusion; and accelerate innovation. We welcome proposals that think broadly and boldly about the future of higher education, as well as those that take deep dives into the tactical and practical skills necessary for effective higher education business operations. Session proposals should focus on one or more of the following questions and themes:

  • How will business practices evolve to serve future generations of students and ensure access, affordability, and success?
  • How can we equip and empower institution leaders to make prudent, strategic decisions to shape the next decade and beyond?
  • How do business officers address today’s operational challenges and “future-proof” their institutions and their economic models?
We will be evaluating sessions best suited to the needs of business professionals at colleges and universities. To assist us in evaluating sessions, please —
  • Include as much detail as possible about the presentation in your description. Be clear about your topic, session format, and how you plan to make your session interactive.
  • Include at least three learning objectives for your presentation. When writing learning objectives, focus on the participant and the specific knowledge, skills, and abilities that can be achieved from your presentation. Learning objectives should complete the sentence, “After completing this session, attendees will be able to...”
  • Provide audience takeaways. Tell us what an audience of higher education business professionals will gain by participating in your session.
  • Gear the presentation toward an audience at the intermediate to advanced level of understanding, rather than basic treatments or overviews.
  • Identify your audience, if applicable. NACUBO continues to focus on programming of interest to institutions of similar type and size. If your presentation specifically addresses the needs of a specific group (for example, community colleges or small institutions), indicate this by adding it to your proposal description.
  • Describe how your presentation will incorporate NACUBO’s principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.


By submitting a proposal you are agreeing to the submission guidelines.
  • Deadline for submissions is Friday, November 4 at 5 pm ET.
  • Proposals not selected for this program may be considered for other programs.
