Pre-Conference Workshop

Preparing for Challenges Ahead

Saturday, June 1, 2013
University of Alaska, Anchorage Campus
9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Registered Participants $20.00 (includes lunch and materials) 

Join us for an interactive workshop which focuses on some of the major challenges facing higher education institutions—especially small institutions.  Speakers will help attendees better understand higher education economic issues and will assist attendees in better preparing to have those “difficult conversations” which are sometimes required in personnel management. The lunch hour will be devoted to providing opportunities to meet and interact with representatives from other similar campuses. While the program is being offered by the WACUBO Small Institutions Committee, all WACUBO attendees are invited to participate. Bus service will be provided and will depart from the Captain Cook Hotel at 9:30 a.m. and will return by 2:30 p.m. Please come prepared to ask questions and share your experiences, successes and challenges.
