Speaking Engagement

Canadian University Boards Association (CUBA) Annual Conference

Event Details

May 4, 2017 - May 6, 2017

Guelph, ON

Award winning author Lawrence Hill, author of Blackberry Sweet Juice, The Illegal, and Book of Negroes, will deliver a keynote address exploring themes of diversity and inclusion. Panels and sessions that follow will include practical ways for Boards and Secretariats to put these important themes into action.

In addition to the keynote theme,  sessions will be offered on another timely topic: supporting Presidential transitions.  Transitions at the senior level offer significant opportunities for universities, but come with a corresponding level of risk. Recent sector events have demonstrated that smooth transitions are key. Sessions on Saturday include panels on presidential transitions both from a Board’s perspective – and from a president’s. Join us for discussions on these timely topics.
