This conference will bring together chief institutional advancement officers, chief enrollment officers, communications/PR officers, financial aid administrators, and alumni professionals. We will gather together to share and learn about practical approaches to the major issues that Christian colleges and universities face. As Christians, when we gather we have the distinct pleasure not only to learn but also to pray and worship together for our cause and for one another.
We are finalizing another excellent lineup of speakers and sessions that will address the major issues affecting your institutions, your students, and our world. Featured plenary speakers include:
- CCCU President, Shirley V. Hoogstra will share updates about the CCCU and what's going in higher education and on Capitol Hill during the Monday night welcome dinner.
- Pastor Rick Warren, founder and lead pastor of Saddleback Church and author of The Purpose Driven Life, will join us and share with us the importance of Hope in our work.
- Derrick Feldmann, president of Achieve Agency and creator of The Millennial Impact Project, will share with us his latest research on millennials and how to best engage them toward action (whether it’s applying, enrolling, getting involved in your cause, donating, etc.)
These are just a few of the key highlights of this year’s program. In addition, there will be breakout tracks geared toward your particular area of expertise, as well as opportunities to network with colleagues and learn about ways to find solutions to some of your toughest challenges through our sponsors, who are top industry leaders in enrollment, marketing, book sales, development, publishing, and more.
