Working Together for a Sustainable Tomorrow

Our world is changing. Our work and how we do it is also changing. Attendance at the 2018 CUWFA conference aims to meaningfully engage colleagues from higher education in addressing the work-life challenges on college campuses and develop plans for action. The 2018 annual conference theme of “Working Together for a Sustainable Tomorrow” focuses on defining a sustainable work culture and the significant impact of embracing such culture on college and university campuses. Format for this year’s conference will include a keynote address, moderator-led panel discussions and facilitated work sessions designed to help attendees address important work-life challenges on their campuses and spur conversation for future CUWFA projects and advocacy. We look forward to exchanging best practices and learning from one another!
