Professional Development Workshops
WACUBO provides a variety of professional development opportunities to meet the needs of campus administrators in higher education. Professional development programs are designed to identify and respond to the professional and continuing education needs of WACUBO members through new and/or revised programs. WACUBO professional development goals are accomplished in a variety of ways including leadership and management institutes, cluster site programs and the distribution of educational materials. Current professional development opportunities can be viewed here.
Each year WACUBO holds a general membership conference at various locations within its region. A member institution located close to the conference site is asked to take a leadership role in planning the conference. Recent conferences have been held in Portland, Oregon, Anaheim, California and Salt Lake City, Utah. Past meeting brochures and materials can be found here.
