Call for Proposals

Be a part of the largest gathering of Christian higher education professionals in the world at the CCCU International Forum, Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, 2018. Every four years, in lieu of stand-alone peer group conferences, the CCCU convenes all campus leaders—presidents, vice presidents, campus ministry directors, financial aid administrators, alumni relations directors, faculty, and more—from CCCU campuses around the world in one location at the International Forum. These leaders will come together for fellowship, to share ideas, and to gain new vision and direction. The Forum provides a valuable opportunity for those who comprise the community of Christian college and university educators to reflect on the past, share solutions to present realities, and build relationships for future collaborative engagement.
