ARUCC/CACUSS Joint Conference, June 2018

News Release

The Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC) and the Canadian Association of College & University Student Services (CACUSS) are pleased to announce a joint conference to take place Sunday, June 17 through Wednesday, June 20, 2018. The conference will take place in Prince Edward Island at the PEI Convention Centre and Delta Prince Edward as the primary venues.

This is the first time these two organizations will formally come together to share common interest, learn from research and innovative practices, and to collaborate and build partnerships between members and external stakeholders.

The Program Committee will be made up of professional staff from universities and colleges across Canada, including local hosts from the University of Prince Edward Island. The theme of the 2018 conference will be announced in June 2017.

The Call for Proposals for educational sessions will open in November 2017 and registration will open in February 2018. General conference information will be available online in August 2017 at and
